Title: Old Footballers - Whatever happened to ...
Post by: froars on June 22, 2004, 09:35:06 PM
Anyone ever follow the whereabouts of footballers who’ve played for the Tiges.  A few go on to coaching, a la Knigher, Bondy etc, but I’d like to know what happens to the others.  I rarely see ex players at Richmond games.  Guys like Freeza – who you would think would still have a great interest - hardly ever.  They may be there, and you just don’t see them, but you’d think you’d see a couple over the years – but I haven’t seen many.

And luv to know if they still play footy straight after they finish, or if the toll of AFL – injuries, discipline, fans etc – has turned them off the game.

I would luv to know how they feel about the clubs they played for 10 years after retirement.  Do they luv the club, show mild interest in how they’re going, or nothing at all.

Tony Free is now coaching the Yarraville Tigers in the FDL (or whatever they call it these days). They have won 3 games so far this season.

Freezer was at the first Tommy Hafey Club luncheon celebrating "Captains Courageous" but unlike a lot of the old players that go to these functions he didn't stay on after it finished

Barry Young is a  MMM commentator and Scotty Turner is coach at Warrnambool (dual premiership one at that). Daffy runs his pub/club business. Leon Cameron is assistant coach back at the Dogs. Of course Knighter coaches the Port Adelaide Magpies. Don't think any of them played again after they finished AFL.

I don't know but doubt Freezer would've played again anywhere. His knee was shot  :'(.

There were a few 90s blokes at the game on Saturday night - Turner, Young, Daffy, Stuart Edwards, David Bourke (still a beanpole  ;D), Robert Schaeffer? and a few others I've forgotten.

Hey Mightytiges, you forgot Chris Naish, he is working for the AFL. Good fella Naishy.
Tony Free was coaching Prahan in the Amatuers before he went to Yarraville.
I do beleive he got his self into a tiny bit of trouble yelling abuse from thre boundary.
Justin Pickering is coaching Old Melburnians in A- grade amatuers.
Jeff Hogg, Justin Paul and Allan McKellar played at St.Kilda City last year(southern league) I beleive Justin Paul is now coaching Bentleigh in the D-Grade Amatuers with Hoggy and  Macca  retired.

Well, I had Michael Pickering in the bar tonight. I told him he was my favourite player when the Tiges traded him to Melbourne  :'(

Doesn't seem to be too interested in footy these days. He mentioned reading the paper a few days ago and saw where Richmond were on the ladder.  :(

Post by: froars on June 26, 2004, 10:46:37 AM
That's sad Gibby.
I wonder whether being associated with an era the club would care to forget would be the reason why they don't invite players of the mid to late '80 and onwards back to the club.
They celebrate a premiership anniversary on a whim - and so they should - but they've still got to acknowledge these guys in some way.

I agree froars and gibby that is sad. Especially as he won a B&F at his time at Richmond. Maybe the Club could organize decade reunions (90s, 80s, 70s, etc...) for these guys.

Just watched Andy Goodwin for a little while today running around for Mooroolbark. He was on his best behaviour because I think he has adjourned charges from last week still to be heard. His three quarter time address was just short of abusive and maniacal. Hate to see him when the team's not 15 goals up. ;D Still great entertainment value. Doesn't mind helping out the umpires with a bit of advice.

Title: Tim Fleming Update
Post by: WilliamPowell on December 21, 2004, 03:16:27 PM
From Footygoss.com:


East Perth have missed out on securing the services of former rugged Richmond midfielder Tim Fleming.

Fleming has signed with SANFL club, South Adelaide.

He had been in discussions with the Royals for several weeks, with the club flying him over to WA for a few days to have a look around.

Fleming had played 34 games for the Tigers since making his debut in 2003 before being de-listed by new coach Terry Wallace.

http://www.footygoss.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=16351&mode=thread&order=0&thold=0

Isn't South Adelaide coached by Shaun Rehn?

If anyone else know the whereabouts of some of our de-listed blokes post it here ;D

Title: Re: Tim Fleming Update
Post by: mightytiges on December 21, 2004, 03:30:27 PM
Isn't South Adelaide coached by Shaun Rehn?

Shaun Rehn coaches West Adelaide where Tucky came from. Former Roo (?) Robert Pyman is South Adelaide's coach.

Clinton King plays for Souths as well. I think he won their B&F this year  :o. Clay Sampson is their captain! No wonder they came second last  ;D.

Title: Re: Tim Fleming Update
Post by: Fishfinger on December 21, 2004, 03:57:01 PM
This is off the Tim Fleming topic a bit. I believe Duncan Kellaway, Matthew Rogers and Steven McKee will likely play for East Burwood next season where Paul Broderick is coach. Other ex Tigers there this year were Steven Sziller, Simon Hart, Scott Homewood and the two Slater boys. (Adam & I think Shaun)

Club corner interviewed John Pitura on Monday night.

- He said he wanted out of South Melbourne because they verbally agreed to pay him more then kept holding off putting the agreement in writing. South like all clubs at the time played hardball until they got Whale Roberts, Teasdale and Jackson.

- Chose Richmond because he wanted to come to a club that he thought would have more future success (beginning 1975). In hindsight unbeknown to him before he arrived our star players were getting old and we were beginning a transitional period. Looking back he said if he had chosen to go to North instead he would have got a transfer easily (in one day) and would have had a chance to win a premiership or two. Seemed he enjoyed his time at Tigerland though.

- He said he found it difficult fitting into our gameplan under Tommy and knowing where teammates ran to. Tommy also trained the players harder which was something he had to get use to.

- Feels what he went through has made it now easier for players to change clubs if they want to.

- Went up to Syndey due to job opportunities. Coached North Shore to a couple of premierships. Lived a period of time in NZ.

- Now living in Queensland IIRC and doesn't have any real interest in modern footy although he likes to reminisce and catch up with ex-teammates about the old days.
Title: Re: Old Footballers - Whatever happened to ... David Honybun article
Post by: one-eyed on June 05, 2005, 02:49:40 AM
Ask a ruckman
Tony Hardy
The Age
June 4, 2005

(http://www.realfooty.theage.com.au/ffximage/2005/06/03/4s_honybun_wideweb__430x280.jpg)
David Honybun in the back of Brendon Gale's HQ Kingswood, where he'd lie down to help his back on the long drive to Geelong.

After two taxing careers, David Honybun ignores the glitterati, Tony Hardy writes.

David Honybun spilled a mark in front of Tom Hafey at NSW state training one night. The great coach hissed that "anyone over six foot three has no brains".

Sure enough, ex-former Carlton and Richmond ruckman Honybun is now an assistant commissioner of the Australian Taxation Office. His title of chief economist (international strategy and operations) needs two business cards and a spell check. No other ruckman could be more qualified to analyse the issues of the day.

"So, David," I asked, seated in his boardroom high above Spring Street, "what are your thoughts on the rumour that Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie actually hate each other?" Now I understand that two spoilt rich kids is an odd tack to take. But the question came late in the interview, after nearly two hours of his hypothe . . . hypotheseesi . . . of his really smart insights on everything from the future amalgamation of AFL clubs to the GDP of Guatemala.

His career has been one smart move after another. In 1986, his first night of pre-season training with North Melbourne was in 30-degree heat. It began at 5pm and at 7.30, there was a seven-kilometre race. For three hours, coach John Kennedy ruled that no player was allowed a sip of water. To prevent his death, halfway through the seven-kilometre time-trial, David stopped and jumped in the lake where he "paddled around".

"At Carlton, they watered their players" he smiled. He loved his previous three years at the Blues. He trained with legends such as Ashman, Southby, Doull, Buckley and Maclure. His locker was next to "Wow" Jones. "On our first weekend away, I was billeted with Jimmy Buckley. I looked up to Jimmy for reasons I'm not sure of. On the Saturday night, we were watching this country and western band when there was a big crash. Jimmy had thrown Ken Sheldon into a wall. Ken Sheldon was stuck in the wall."

"So anyway, David, Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie were friends but not any more. What do you think?"

David deflected the question. He mused about the difference between "implicit" and "complicit" and then we arrived at his years at Tigerland. It was where I first saw him play.

One afternoon at the MCG, he stopped and lay down for a rest along the half-forward line. He crossed his legs and put his hands behind his head. The footy bounced around him and 30,000 people watched. I was rapt. Other people liked it, too, because a few games later, I was hit in the head by a bun, tossed by a cult of Honybun supporters after he kicked a goal.

David's back collapsed on him at Richmond. His specialist said it was the worst back X-ray he'd ever seen on anybody of any age. For the drive to Kardinia Park, Allan Jeans made him lie in the back of Benny Gale's orange HQ Kingswood station wagon. "We got flogged, anyway. Bryan Leys' job to tag Gary Ablett was routinely unsuccessful. Ablett kicked 10 or 12, which was about his average against Richmond."

David described Richmond in the late '80s and early '90s as "like a country footy club". Things didn't work. They even had a boot sponsor that refused to send boots. "We bought our own boots, then had the bootmaker put the right stripes in," he said.

The chief economist of the ATO worries about the future of the game. "We've had an economic boom and clubs are making a loss. What happens at the next recession?"

"I think it was during the last recession that Nicole Ritchie's dad Lionel sang . . . Hello?" I countered.

"Soccer has finally got itself right," he continued. "I don't think it's half the game that Aussie Rules is, but long-term, footy hasn't the right system in place. What if there's no media rights and we're in a recession?"

I took his point. "Speaking of media rights, I only bring up Paris and Nicole because they were on the cover of a women's magazine."

And then, finally, Honybun agreed to point his ruckman's brain towards the issue of the day. "Oh, I don't follow that stuff at all," he said. "I'm not a glitterati person. Most of US television is a non-event, a complete waste of time."

Gee he's smart.

Looked very frail Mopsy but he was quite funny with his anwers to the Rex Hunt questions. Rex would ask these long questions about the family's history with the Club and Frank would give one word answers - Rex then asked young David a question and after he answered he went back to Frank and said something like "want to add anything to your last answer Frank?" and Frank would say "No".

Title: Northey to coach Ballarat
Post by: one-eyed on November 18, 2005, 03:45:54 AM
Northey back in charge
18 November 2005  
Herald Sun
Mark Robinson

JOHN Northey has put the coaching hat back on at age 62.

The former Sydney, Melbourne, Richmond and Brisbane coach has returned to country Victoria and will coach Ballarat in the Ballarat Football League. He was appointed this week.

Sadly, the proposal to coach Ballarat arose when Northey, who was living on the Gold Coast, returned to Ballarat for his father's funeral in early September.

"It was out of the blue," Northey said yesterday.

Northey will also manage the club's new $1.2 million licensed sports club. He had previously owned a bar and restaurant on the Gold Coast.

"They asked me about doing the job and I knocked them back . . . and then they came back with a proposal regarding their sports club," Northey said.

Now he's back at the helm and, he says, his passion has also returned.

"I suppose you mellow over the years of coaching," he said.

But has he mellowed? "We'll see . . . I'm sure I've still got that bit of venom I can throw out.

"Hopefully I can educate these kids well because they are a very young side, they haven't had any success for about 18 years, I believe."

A successful Victorian country coach, Northey coached four clubs in the AFL from 1985 to 1998 before coaching Broadbeach in Queensland and South Fremantle in Western Australia.

I said he was a quality bloke. At least he had the courage to turn-up to the B&F after he was told he was gone unlike a couple of others

I reckon he did work hard while he was at the Tigers Jack - he was always working a lot harder than a few of his more "gifted" team-mates, trying to improve. Skill wise he was never going to as good as a number of others but his enthusiasm for trying to make it was great.

His kicking was his major weakness IMO

ATF - Kyle had a very severe cash of OP in his first season basically didn't play at all - except for a couple of games at Coburg late in 2004.

Hilton finds joy of game at Euroa
11 March 2006 
 Herald Sun
David Hastie

DELISTED by Richmond at the end of 2005, utility Rory Hilton was understandably disenchanted with football.

Dogged by injury for much of his eight seasons at the top, Hilton confessed he never really enjoyed his time in the AFL.

"My AFL career, I didn't really enjoy it that much because I was always injured," Hilton said.

"Footy's a game and you have got to enjoy it and I suppose I haven't."

After he was told by Tigers coach Terry Wallace that his contract wouldn't be renewed, the talented 26-year-old felt an enormous weight lifted off his battered shoulders.

"When I found out off Terry, I wasn't upset, let me tell you," Hilton said. "It was probably more a feeling of relief than anything. I'd had enough of AFL probably about three seasons ago to be honest.

"But I just sort of hung in there for as long as I could."

Ready to turn his back on football altogether, Hilton had a change of heart, agreeing to play with country side Euroa in the Goulburn Valley Football League this season.

"Initially I wasn't sure if I was going to bother with footy because I had sort of had enough," he said.

"Footy isn't a priority any more. I'm doing it purely to play with some mates and enjoy it."

Hilton, who kicked 54 goals in 91 matches, will return to Euroa where he played as a junior. For the first time since being selected by the Brisbane Lions with their third selection in the 1996 national draft, Hilton is enjoying his football.

The refuge of country football is a welcome escape for Hilton from the AFL landscape.

"I certainly won't go and watch the footy," he said.

"I'll still support (the Tigers) from afar, but probably my mates more so than the actual club. But that's not to say I'm bitter or anything because I loved my time there.

"I loved all the staff and everyone there but I haven't been in touch with them, not at all."

Life after AFL has been kind to Hilton. He is working full-time and studying property part-time, a welcome change from lengthy spells on the sidelines because of injury.

"I'm pretty happy just to be playing footy on the weekend and working during the week and studying and doing all normal things," he said.

"I'm loving it, wish I had have done it about five years ago."

Tigers champ Turner returns
Dean Lawson
Wimmera Mail Times
Friday, 2 June 2006

FORMER Richmond champion Scott Turner will return to his native club Ararat this weekend after a 15-year absence from Wimmera Football League.

Turner's inclusion has bolstered the Rats for a crucial match against Horsham United on Sunday.

The experienced key-position defender told the Mail-Times yesterday he was looking forward to his Wimmera League return.

"I can't wait to be running around Alexandra Oval again. It's going to be different, I don't really know many of the guys, a lot of them are my mates' sons," he said. "I'm a bit excited. I'm looking forward to getting through the game, getting the four points

and having a cold beer in the clubrooms afterwards."

Turner, based in Warrnambool, will only play when available, a situation caused by a combination of work, travel, family commitments and injury management.

He is waiting on the sale of his Noodle Box business in Warrnambool before moving back to the Wimmera with wife Kerri and son Paddy, 6.

Turner has lived in Warrnambool for the past five years.

In that time he has coached Warrnambool to back-to-back Hampden League premierships. Last year he was assistant coach of the side and finished third in the club's best and fairest.

He has trained with South Warrnambool and Warrnambool this year and organised his own training regime during the past few weeks.

"I would have liked to play earlier in the season but it wasn't to be. I got one of the Ararat guys at the club to fax me through a draw and I circled the United game, I was pretty keen to play in that one. I want to play against our arch-rival Stawell next

week but I'm pencilled into play in a Richmond legends match, so we'll see what happens," he said.

"We've got Horsham in a few weeks too and I'd love to play them. I played against David Johns in a Richmond exhibition match against a Northern Territory representative side many years ago. It was good - two Wimmera blokes going at it."

Ararat coach David Law said Turner's return had created a positive buzz in the club but was careful to say his inclusion would not unbalance the side.

"It's fantastic news for the club, but we are not going to become one dimensional," he said. "If 16-year-old Tom Cashin is in the best spot to kick a goal we want him to kick it. We don't want him to pass it to Scott Turner.

"Turner is a significant part of our make-up and where we are going but our team will not revolve around him."

June 10, 2006

THE return of former Richmond defender Scott Turner to his home-town club has injected life into the Wimmera Football League. Before last week's round, in which Turner kicked six goals in his first game for Ararat in 15 years, Wimmera fans would have been forgiven for losing interest.

...

Former Richmond backman Scott Turner, 36, said before last weekend that he was especially looking forward to playing against Stawell. Such is the feeling engendered by a rivalry stretching back to the 1870s.

Ednie (early 00s) was a elevated rookie who was similar in size to Foley. Genetics (too small) was the reason he didn't make it rather than lack of ability or attitude. Played just 7 games.
Title: How Daffy pays the bills (Herald-Sun)

How Duck pays the bills
01 July 2006   Herald-Sun
Mike Sheahan

WHEN Nick Daffy left Mt Gambier for Melbourne late in 1991, his future was based on nothing more substantial than a spot on the Richmond list and the optimism of youth.

He had no place to stay in the big city, no job outside of football.

He has often told mates he wondered where he was headed in a Mini Minor struggling to climb the West Gate Bridge on that drive to Melbourne.

Fifteen years on, the player nicknamed ``Duck'' is one of the outstanding examples of how a young man can turn a football career into a bridge to the business world, to success and financial security.

Not simply because he was a good footballer, more because he was a good player who also was a good listener, a young man with ambition and drive and an early realisation footballers can be finished before they're 30.

Daffy, 33, is one of three partners in After Dark management, which owns four cafe/club/lounge/bars in Melbourne. He also is a senior partner and driving force in a separate group of former and current footballers who own the Waterside Hotel in the CBD, freehold and all.

His business partners are former teammates Wayne Campbell, Brendon and Michael Gale, and Stuart Wigney, current players Nick Riewoldt, Nathan Brown, Matthew Richardson, Chris Tarrant and Dean Solomon, and Essendon premiership player Sean Wellman.

The Waterside, reportedly purchased for $3.4million a couple of years ago, will be valued in the order of $7million when current renovations are completed.

The old wharfie landmark now is the place where the corporates gather on weekdays and the young and socially mobile like to be seen at night.

Daffy has equity in the Blue Room, Lounge Room (Docklands), Waterside, Water Rat and the latest Docklands venture, The Fix, in which his partners are Tarrant and comedian Dave Hughes.

Richmond premiership player Peter Welsh, a club director during much of Daffy's time at Punt Rd Oval, alerted him to the need to use his football earnings and contacts.

``He sat myself and Wayne Campbell down a few years ago and said, `Get into commercial property as quick as you can','' Daffy said.

Daffy already had shown himself to be a self-starter, buying into a run-down pizza shop in Clarendon St, South Melbourne, a shop that became the Blue Room.

That was in 1998, when he was 25 and just six years into his career. He risked his house to take a part in the $300,000 enterprise. It was, he says, a ``fairly big risk''.

He had been a signwriter for four years then a full-time footballer for two, but he and teammate Campbell had plans and dreams, and both were aspiring developers.

``What helped me was I hung in the right group, I had a couple of good role models. I had Wayne and Brendon Gale, who were heading down the right track,'' Daffy said.

``Peter Welsh, too. He was a bit of a lad, but he had a business instinct ... yeah, a bit like myself. One thing he said was when you come out football, you have a thicker skin than a lot of other people and a lot more energy, and you're ready to take a risk because you're used to taking risks.''

Daffy is the ideas man, the one who sees the opportunities, plans the design and development, and then markets the finished product.

It all started when he became friends with Jimmy Derzekoz, who ran a sandwich bar opposite the Blue Room.

``At the time, all we did was train and play and go to coffee shops and restaurants, so I thought this would be a great thing to get involved in,'' Daffy said.

``Jimmy, myself and Vic Stroumos bought the Blue Room. Now we've got four places.''

Daffy is happy involving footballers in his ventures, so long as they come with the right motives.

``I always wanted to be involved with people who wanted to learn a bit about business rather than just piggy-back them,'' he said. ``If you get the right mix and everyone's got their own roles, it can work.''

Tarrant, for example, is expected to be the front man at functions for groups such as Collingwood corporates.

``Chris has been wanting to get into something for a couple of years and Paul Connors (his manager) is out there seeking opportunities for his players.''

Daffy says he learned many of his business principles from football.

``I used to watch the (Robert) Harveys and the (Matthew) Knights.

``I found out Harvey trained harder than anyone else, so I did the same thing. I always made sure I trained harder than anyone at Richmond.

``In business, I learned to just ask, ask, ask.

``There's a lot of down time in football, a lot of time to gather information, to learn.''

Daffy played 165 games for Richmond and one for Sydney from 1992-2002. He won Richmond's best-and-fairest in 1998.

Ex-players deserve more than a battered body
01 July 2006   Herald-Sun
Comment by Mike Sheahan

PETER Welsh says he played with and against many ``absolute champions'' who left football with little more than memories.

``In my era (1973-84), there were a lot of guys who were brilliant footballers, absolute champions, who came out the end with nothing.

``A lot of players look for benefactors to make them the money, but you've actually got to do it yourself.

``Nick (Daffy) has gone out and done it himself.''

Welsh, who owns Tanami Trading, a wholesale business dealing in sporting and outdoor goods, said he left it too long to address a future after football.

In an admission that will surprise no one who played with him at either Hawthorn or Richmond, he said: ``I should have got smarter when I was playing football, but my social interests probably occupied a little too much of my time.''

Daffy and several of his teammates were the beneficiaries of Welsh's belated maturity. ``I took a bit of shine to three or four of the boys, Nick, Wayne (Campbell), the Gale boys (Brendon and Michael) and Richo (Matthew Richardson).

``I remember having a lot of talks with Nick and Wayne about football being just football, that there's another life and you have to pursue it with the same energy.

``You have this abundance of energy, both physically and emotionally, when you're playing football.
``When you finish, suddenly you can put all that energy and emotion into other areas.

``I remember telling them property is the thing. As long as you can fund it, you'll come out a winner. These boys have made a great fist of it.''

Welsh said he merely replicated the role of another former Richmond player and director, the late John Robertson.

``Robbo was a great mentor of mine. We would meet at Don Camillo's (restaurant) weekly and chat about lots of things.

``Craig Stewart, Stephen Pirrie and Michael Thomson all were players and friends of mine who committed to doing well in business.

``Footballers today have got an unbelievable opportunity, but there's still players coming out with not a cracker.

``In the end, it comes back to the individual. You put all these guys in the melting pot (AFL) and they've got to decide who they want to be like.''

FORMER Richmond and Kangaroos utility David Bourke has stepped into the Myrtleford senior line-up to play Wodonga Raiders in the Ovens and Murray League today.

Bourke kicked four goals in the Myrtleford reserves last week after agreeing to join former Richmond teammate Steve McKee at the club mid-season.

"He played some good footy which is all we wanted to see really," Myrtleford coach Travis Hodgson said.

"We didn't want anything too special. We just wanted to see if his body was right after having so much time off.

"But he was great and the reserves boys had a good win. It was a good way for him to start."

Bourke comes into the team to help replace star duo Brad Murray and Andrew Carey, who were both injured against North Albury last round.

Dean Limbach signs for Seagulls

Former Richmond forward Dean Limbach has signed on to play for Williamstown in 2007. Dean is a mobile forward who should provide a strong marking target in the forward line next season.

Dean failed to play a game at AFL level in his two years at the Tigers after being drafted at #52 in the 2004 National Draft. However he showed promising signs as a Tall Forward at VFL level in 2006 booting 7 goals against Port Melbourne and 5 goals against Werribee. Dean kicked 30 goals from 15 games at Senior level and kicked 20 goals from 4 games at Reserves level for Coburg. Dean was also part of the 2004 Calder Cannons TAC Cup Premiership side.

Dean is a valuable acquisition to the Williamstown side to fill the void in the forward line after the departures of Galea and Lawry.

Rombotis is the new coach of Kangaroo Flat....

--------------------------------------------
KANGAROO Flat yesterday ended its three-month search for a new senior coach by announcing former AFL player John Rombotis will lead the club in the All Seasons Bendigo Football League this year.

Rombotis played 48 games of AFL football with Fitzroy, Port Adelaide and Richmond.

Kangaroo Flat has won just five games in the past four seasons, but Rombotis, who has signed a two-year deal, says he isn't concerned by what the club has done in the past, he is focussed solely on the future.

'‘We're about developing a new side and a new beginning," Rombotis, who was non-committal on whether he will pull on the boots this year, said yesterday.

 Since Rombotis' AFL career ended in 2000, he has coached Belgrave in the Yarra Valley Mountain District Football League, won a premiership with amateur club St Kevin's and spent the past two years coaching Roxburgh Park in the second division of the Essendon District Football League.

‘‘This is a two-year coaching tenure with an option, but at the moment, I just want to focus on developing the side and I'm really looking forward to it."

‘‘John has a vast amount of experience, he has played with Fitzroy underneath Bernie Quinlan and Mick Nunan, Port Adelaide underneath John Cahill, and Richmond under Jeff Gieschen and Danny Frawley.

Then there's this other kid we've been hiding up in the Tiwi Islands - he's not played much football and he's about 50kgs. But he's got a lot of upside. I mean a lot of upside. Like, you wouldn't know it from the way he fumbles all the time and that's when he even gets the thing in the first place & the way he's spent by about quarter time. He's primarily played on the wing and last week he racked up a game high 8 possessions. As I said, HUGE upside.

Who do you draft?

It was rumoured for a long time last year that Dean was going to be dropped back to the rookie list with Howat promoted. Then both didn't happen and Kingsley was picked up in the PSD with King and Clingan as our 3rd and 4th rookies. Once the Club decided on Kingsley that was the end for Limbach at Punt Rd.

Former Tiger Kevin Shinner
Legend still enjoying those days of glory
Dandenong Star
By Shaun Inguanzo
2nd August 2007 11:00:04 AM

DANDENONG’S own football legend Kevin Shinners was guest speaker at a special luncheon organised by Dandenong RSL secretary John Laughton last week.

The afternoon event took place at the RSL sub branch last Thursday and Mr Shinners was on hand to entertain guests with stories about his footballing days.

Mr Shinners not only played for Dandenong but also with the Richmond Tigers in 1967 and 1968.

The 62-year-old said that during the late 1950s there was no junior football league in Dandenong.

“I was playing with the Noble Park Under 17s when I was only 11 years old,” he said.

“I was not given a game each week but I trained all of the time.”

Mr Shinners then went to Dandenong where he played under 19s as a 16-year-old.

His finesse with the ball earned him a spot with the Richmond Tigers at the age of 22 where he wore the number 18 and played alongside Bombers coaching legend Kevin Sheedy.

Mr Shinners played 23 matches for Richmond between 1967 and 1968 and said he still kept in touch with former players, including Sheedy.

In fact, Mr Shinners revealed that he had spoken to Sheedy soon after the announcement he would not be staying on as Essendon coach.

“He’ll coach again, let’s put it that way,” Mr Shinners said when members of the audience began questioning him about his conversation with Sheedy.

“I’d like to see him back at Richmond but not as a coach,” he said.

“The problem at Richmond is that there are not enough Richmond people.”

Mr Shinners said he believed that today’s footballers were overpaid and instead needed to revert back to the old VFL days where most had occupations on top of their football commitments.

Mr Shinners said football had played a big part of his life and was a great game for uniting people.

“You all go out on to the ground as equals,” he said.

“And the contacts you make (in football) are lifelong.”

Mr Shinners had a short but sweet closing line for the audience to take away.

“Enjoy the moment, bask in the memories,” he said.

In this town, A-list is AFL-list
Ian Gilbert | August 19, 2007 | The Age

Former Richmond captain Wayne Campbell, now on the Western Bulldogs' coaching staff, acknowledges that a footy figurehead does a business no harm. He owns The Swan pub in Richmond and (with football "names" Nick Riewoldt, Nathan Brown, Brendon Gale and Sean Wellman) the Waterside Hotel in the city.

"No doubt early on it helps to have a name, but the product is first, second and third in terms of importance. I think it makes it easier to advertise or to market because people think, the Waterside — Nick Riewoldt or Nathan Brown," he says.

Former Western Bulldog Paul Dimattina is a regular sight at Bourke Street restaurant Society, one of four restaurants owned by his family, along with Blue Train, Dimattina's and Il Gambero. His father Frank, a former Richmond and North Melbourne player, is also involved.

Some ex-Tigers in local finals action over the weekend:

In the Ammo's C-section second semi-final, Rory Hilton kicked 2.8 for the Old Camberwell in their comeback win over Rupertswood.

In the Kyabram District league second semi-final,  Aaron James  kicked nine goals in Stanhope's big win over Ardmona. In James' four games for the Lions, he's kicked 10, 10, eight and nine goals.

In the EFL, Vermont's Matt Greig went into the second semi-final against Noble Park with 95 goals for the season. He kicked two as Noble Park comfortably rolled the Eagles.

Bruce Monteath's sons are both playing in Grand Finals this weekend.

Donna Monteath, the wife of Richmond's 1980 premiership captain Bruce Monteath, writes that this weekend she has two sons playing in Grand Finals but in different states. Rhys is playing for Port Melbourne Reserves against Coburg Reserves in the VFL and his brother Kym is playing for East Fremantle Reserves against Subiaco Reserves in the WAFL. She states that her husband and herself will have to toss a coin to see who flies over to watch Rhys and who stays to watch Kym. As she said a very tough decision.

Just on that game rather than an ex-player, a Noble Park player marked as the final siren went about 15m out. Had a shot after the siren to win the premiership and shanked it for a point. Vermont won by 4 points.

The 24-year-old former West Coast and Richmond midfielder was originally recruited to the Eagles in 2000 from the North Ballarat Under 18s and played 22 games in the west before playing one match for the Tigers in 2006.

The Geelong Advertiser reported on Thursday that Humm has already returned to Perth.

Former Richmond and Adelaide utility Jason Torney will line up for his original side, South Adelaide for the next two years after the 30-year-old was delisted by the Crows at the end of last season.

Torney, who played every game for the Crows in 2007, played 77 matches in five seasons for the South Australian club after 118 games in eight seasons for the Tigers.

It is believed Torney was offered several coaching roles at AFL clubs before electing to continue his playing career in the SANFL with positions at Essendon and Port Adelaide among the offerings.

Banik is now the inaugural president of Woodside and District Wildcats FC (which split from DWWWW) and joined the North Gippsland FL.

----------------------
Four-wheel drives go off road
Adam McNicol | March 30, 2008

IN 1997, the merger of the Devon-Welshpool and Won Wron-Woodside Football Clubs created an entity that attracted a cult following among regular readers of the bush footy scores.

Listed each week in the Alberton league results as DWWWW, the club became colloquially known as the Four-Wheel-Drives, despite its official nickname being the Allies.

Initially, the bringing together of four tiny Gippsland communities, located near the rural service centre of Yarram, was a raging success. DWWWW won three senior premierships in its first seven seasons and produced plenty of talented juniors, including Royce Vardy, who went on to play for Richmond.

But a lack of on-field success last season resulted in declining player numbers and local support. Cracks emerged in what had seemed a solid foundation.

The people of Won-Wron and Woodside decided to go it alone. They created a new club, the Woodside and District Wildcats, and entered the North Gippsland league.

Surveying the scene with a smile was Anthony Banik, the inaugural Woodside Wildcats president. Best known as the No. 1 pick in the 1989 AFL national draft, Banik played 49 games for Richmond before returning home to Gippsland. He finally retired after coaching the Allies to a premiership in 2003.

Having been the Allies' president last year, Banik has clear reasons why the club could not go on the way it was.

"It had been a progression downwards slowly in numbers and it got to the point where we only had six guys at pre-season last year," he said, citing the long trips to Phillip Island (171 kilometres) and Wonthaggi (131 kilometres) as major problems.

Dragicevic calls it a day
WARREN PARTLAND | May 09, 2008 10:57am

EXPERIENCED West Adelaide midfielder Marc Dragicevic, runner-up in the past three club best-and-fairest awards, has announced his retirement.

Dragicevic, plagued by injury this season, told his team-mates of his decision at training on Wednesday night.

He will make his final appearance for the Bloods in the reserves against Sturt at Unley tomorrow.

Coach Andrew Collins said it is sad to see a player of that calibre retire with the mind still capable but the body not able to continue due to tendonitis of both knees and arthritis of the ankle.

"I've seen Marc dominate VFL/SANFL football and he is arguably one of the best clearance players," Collins said.

Dragicevic, 27, played 60 league games since being recruited from Richmond, where he fronted for 48 AFL matches.

Title: Ex-Tiger Aaron James reported for striking a spectator
Post by: one-eyed on May 21, 2008, 02:50:35 AM
Age article about Ty Zantuck (Heidelberg) going head to head with Jake King's brother Jarrod (North Heidelberg) in the Northern FL. Justin Murphy and Rhys Monteath, son of Bruce, also play for Heidelberg.

Also Aaron James playing for Kyabram has been reported twice for striking. First time was for striking a opponent which got him sent off. He was then reported again for striking a spectator who had been mouthing off at him from over the fence. It looks like he'll be deregistered as a result.


--------------------------------------

Venues change but warriors don't
Paul Daffey | May 21, 2008

FORMER AFL defender Ty Zantuck was suspended for four games after his final game for Kangaroo Flat last year.

Having switched to Heidelberg over summer, he chose an interesting place to make his debut for the Northern Football League club at the weekend when he lined up at the home of arch-enemy, North Heidelberg.

The easiest way to describe North Heidelberg is to say that Jake King comes from there. Bulldogs players are lippy. One of the worst at making an irritant of himself is Jake's brother Jarrod, who plays at half-back.

On Saturday, Jarrod King was among the North Heidelberg defenders who lined up to offer advice to Zantuck when the burly 26-year-old took his place in the Heidelberg goal square. Zantuck kept himself nice while kicking goals with his first two kicks. But after moving on to the ball in the second quarter, he let down his guard during a dust-up in the North goal square.

His transgression, though apparently minor, led to a free kick to North Heidelberg's Shane Harvey, brother of North Melbourne champ Brent. Harvey kicked a goal, putting the Bulldogs ahead of the premier.

Zantuck went on to have the last laugh by kicking five goals in the Tigers' five-goal win. Harvey kicked four for North Heidelberg.

Zantuck and Harvey were not the only players with AFL connections in the game. Justin Murphy and Anthony Franchina were among Heidelberg's best, while Dale and Danny Nolan, the sons of North Melbourne's "Galloping Gasometer", Mick Nolan, played top games in the Tigers' forward line.

It might not surprise Richmond followers to learn that Rhys Monteath started on the Heidelberg bench before coming on at half-forward and kicking a goal. Monteath is the son of Bruce Monteath, who started on the bench in the 1980 grand final and later that day hoisted the cup as the Tigers' premiership captain.

Still in the Northern league, former Carlton captain Lance Whitnall continued his slashing form for Lalor, kicking eight goals in the Bloods' win over Greensborough. The ball was like a cake of soap, but Whitnall regularly bustled aside three opponents to take one-grab marks.

Former AFL player Aaron James was also reported twice while playing for Kyabram and District league club Stanhope against Undera.

In the second quarter, James and his opponent Matt McMurtie had their numbers taken for striking each other, and were sent off. James was then reported for striking a spectator who had been mouthing off at him from over the fence.

James, 31, ended the match with four goals, bringing his tally to 61 from six games, as Stanhope maintained its unbeaten record. But his career is in jeopardy.

In 2006, when he was at Sunbury Kangaroos, James was suspended for 16 games for acting in a threatening manner towards an umpire. If suspended again, he will be deregistered in keeping with a rule that is enforced after players are suspended for more than 16 games.

Former Richmond player joins St Albans
Bradley Green
23May08

GEELONG Football League cellar dweller St Albans has received a boost with former Richmond midfielder Marc Dragicevic signing with the club.

Dragicevic has been cleared to the Supersaints by SANFL club West Adelaide and, while the club was last night remaining tight-lipped, he could line-up for his new club as early as tomorrow against Leopold.

The 27-year-old decided his body could no longer cope with playing at state league level in Adelaide and was keen to return home to Geelong.

St Albans coach Steve Clark said the club was delighted to secure his signature.

"We spoke to him in the pre-season when the rumour was going around that he was keen to come home," Clark said. "Like every club, we got in touch with him and we're lucky that he's kept in touch with Chris Chubb and Robbie Law."

Dragicevic, who started his career with North Geelong, was snapped up by Richmond in the 1998 draft from the Geelong Falcons.

He made his AFL debut in 1999 and played 48 games and kicked 25 goals for the Tigers in six seasons. His career was stalled when he injured his knee early in the 2001 season and required a knee reconstruction.

He missed the entire 2002 season after re-injuring the knee in the first game of the pre-season.

Dragicevic joined West Adelaide in 2005 and played 60 games with the Bloods

Kevin Morris is heavily into the Trots

-------------------------
Kevin putting On Ritz
Herald-Sun 18 Jul 2008, Page 095
By Adam Hamilton

TWO things happened to change Kevin Morris's life in 1973.

The first was his key role in the first of Richmond's back-to-back premiership wins.

The second, a chance foray into racehorse ownership, is just starting to realise its potential.

Midway through the stellar season with the Tigers, Morris went for a beer with a few mates at a petrol station in Richmond -- better known to insiders as an after-hours boozer -- with cash to buy two greyhounds.

Truth journalist Brian Hansen stopped by to grab some petrol on the way to Warragul trots that night.

"We got talking and the next thing I've spent the money I had to buy the dogs on a share in Brian's pacer, Smokey Raider,'' Morris recalled. "A couple of hours later I was at Warragul watching the horse run third.''

Morris, who played 110 games for Richmond and 71 for Collingwood, including two losing Grand Finals, had caught the harness racing bug.

One of his most memorable pacers from his playing days was Snuk On Sam, a winner of seven races.

"I owned him with a group of mates and they went behind my back and named him Snuk On Sam. The horse was by Sammy Karamea, but they claimed the name came from the fact I'd clocked Sam Kekovich from behind one day.''

When Morris's playing days were over he owned and worked in pubs, took on a variety of coaching roles, including a stint as an Essendon assistant, but the harness racing interest lingered. The chance to take the horses a step further came when Morris bought a 40-acre property at Coimadai, near Toolern Vale.

"My neighbour was into trotters. He raced a handy one called Hope Reins Supreme. I got to know him, then decided to try breeding a couple myself,'' he said.

Morris's first trotter was an accident. "He was a pacer called Knee Knocker, but the problem is he really did knock his knees when he paced so we tried him as a trotter and he won some races,'' he said.

"One of his wins carried a free service to the trotting sire Malhana Gindin, so I bred a mare called Mojati to him and that's when I had my first real break.''

The resultant foal was Djerriwarrh, who retired with 27 wins and $205,000 in prizemoney. Morris fondly remembers the day Djerriwarrh ran second in the 1999 Redwood Classic, Australia's most sought after two-year-old trotting race, at Maryborough.

Nine years later and Morris hopes to go one better in Sunday's Redwood with his latest star Trottn On The Ritz, winner of the Group 1 Vicbred final at Moonee Valley.

Morris still has footy ties in a recruiting role for North Melbourne, but the Kangaroos have given him Sunday off to head to Maryborough.

ARARAT - Ararat Rats under 14s went to a training session of a different kind when they headed down to the Richmond Football Club.

John Malligan was the driving force behind the project and with help from former Richmond defender and now Ararat senior coach Scott Turner, the boys were treated to a morning at Punt Road.

The boys watched the Tigers train and were able to interact with the players, before being taken on a guided tour of the club by Dale Weightman, a former premiership player and the Richmond skills coach.

Weightman showed the players into the Richmond training rooms and spoke to them about the importance of personal fitness, skills, diet and dedication.

Ovens and Murray Football League cases highlight flaws in tribunal system
Herald-Sun | August 09, 2008

TWO high-profile cases in the Ovens and Murray Football League have highlighted flaws in the tribunal system across Victoria.

Tribunals no longer have the power to issue severe reprimands when players are found guilty of on-field indiscretions.

Yarrawonga coach Craig Ednie and Wodonga star Matthew Shir were both suspended for one match on striking charges arising from games last weekend despite appearing before the tribunal for the first time in their careers.

Ednie is a recent Morris Medal winner and Shir is one of the favourites for the award this season.

O & M tribunal chairman David Iverson has been frustrated by the inability to issue severe reprimands to players with unblemished records following relatively minor offences.

"It's just ridiculous we have to impose penalties on people who are more than entitled to an exercise of discretion in their favour," Iverson said.

"One was a coach who has never been reported before and the other who has played 100-plus games and never been reported and that entitles them to some sort of consideration in my point of view.

"The league says they have made representations repeatedly since they have changed the laws, but it's falling on deaf ears."

Ednie will miss tomorrow's clash with second-placed Corowa-Rutherglen, with Yarrawonga in contention for a double-chance finish.

Shir was appealing against his one-match suspension last night in a bid to play against premiership favourite Wangaratta today.

The former Adelaide draftee joined Wodonga in 2004 and along with Ednie is regarded as being among the competition's elite players.

Shir has also won two best and fairests at Wodonga.

Players can elect to take a set penalty when reported, but if they decide to contest the charge at the tribunal the minimum sanction they can receive if found guilty is one match.

Failing to be ton-tied, there's now a ton of expectation
Paul Daffy | August 20, 2008

FEV and Buddy aren't the only footballers locked in a battle to reach 100 goals. In Melbourne's Eastern Football League, the full-forwards from the top two teams are putting the finishing touches on a thrilling duel to reach the ton.

That's not to say their duel has been neck-and-neck. Vermont's Matthew Greig, the son of dual Brownlow medallist Keith, started last weekend's round on 99 goals, while Balwyn spearhead Pat Bowden, the brother of Richmond's Joel, was on 82. The events of the next few hours were expected on one hand and out of the blue on the other.

Almost weekly, Greig launches his pale, skinny frame on to someone's head to take an unimaginable mark. His pyrotechnics have dragged spectators through the gate at Vermont for the past five seasons. Children go from end to end to watch him from behind the goals.

So it was with a touch of anti-climax on Saturday that the 30-year-old reached his third ton in three seasons. It was at cold and windy Lilydale. Greig kicked his first goal seven minutes into the match and all interest was lost. He had three goals by three-quarter-time, after which he sat on the bench to rest a wobbly knee.

Bowden was delisted by Richmond after last season. He considered playing amateur footy with University Blacks or Old Xaverians before signing to play under former Hawthorn midfielder Daniel Harford at Balwyn.

His opening five games with Balwyn were on a wing or at centre half-forward. But since kicking seven goals from full-forward against Blackburn, it's as if he's been channelling former Richmond birdman Michael Roach. No one in his AFL days would have suspected his penchant for big grabs.

Bowden had no expectations of notching the ton against Norwood on Saturday, but then he kicked his team's opening seven goals and the possibilities opened up. At half-time, he had nine. In the last quarter, with the milestone in sight, he got the wobbles.

With two goals to go, the 27-year-old missed a shot from 15 metres out straight in front. Two more shots ended up out on the full. When centre half-forward Nick Smith had a shot two metres out from goal rather than handballing to Bowden, the crowd booed.

It was around this time that Balwyn president Richard Wilson approached the coach's bench and demanded that Bowden be dragged. He wanted a week's build-up based on Bowden's imminent ton before the club's final home match the following week, against fourth-placed East Ringwood. The coaches told him to get back to the beer tent.

Bowden's final goal against Norwood, a kick after the siren, gave him a tally for the match of 17.5, with a few more shots that finished in the next suburb. It broke Matthew Greig's league record of 15 goals in a game. And it assured Balwyn of box-office booty this Saturday.

Yep FF, James won his appeal for re-registration last week.

Quote
Stanhope full-forward Aaron James last night successfully appealed his deregistration from AFL Victoria and is expected to line up against Violet Town in the Kyabram District Football League this Saturday. James, who was a member of Gisborne’s 2002 BFL premiership, was earlier in the year suspended for three weeks after being found guilty on a misconduct charge during Stanhope’s 37-point win over Undera on May 17.

With the three-game suspension, and taking into account his past record, it tipped James over the 16-game suspension threshold allowed by AFL Victoria, and as a result, he was deregistered. Prior to his deregistration, James, who played 54 AFL games for Collingwood, Richmond and the Western Bulldogs, had kicked 61 goals in six games for the season, made up of hauls of 11, 9, 11, 19, 7 and 4.

‘‘We’ve already informed the league president and league secretary to implement plan A, which is immediate re-registration,’’ Stanhope president Gavan Poole said.

‘‘Aaron had to show the tribunal that he had taken steps to rehabilitate himself with respect to the issues that had caused his loss of temper, and he has certainly done that with professional help.

‘‘But while the tribunal upheld the appeal, it hastened to add that if he ever gets found guilty again, that means life.’’ Stanhope boasts the best winning streak in the VCFL with 26 consecutive victories.

http://www.bendigoadvertiser.com.au/news/local/sport/general/carter-found-not-guilty-at-bfl-tribunal/1249794.aspx

He also earlier this year said that he enjoyed his time at Richmond the most during his AFL career.

"Under-19 best and fairest at Sandringham, that was about the extent of my rookie type things."

Kellaway came through the supplementary list at Richmond before going on to play 172 games for the Tigers.

"The supplementary list was just before the rookie list and I came through the long way and developed a bit after turning 18," he said.

"These guys need to make sure they keep enjoying their footy and embrace the culture at their club and achieve the best they can at their club."

He was only on our rookie list....

Smash, Crash & Bang

That's the sound of breaking records.

Adrian Burgiel has smashed Neville Marchesi's 42 year old "1st Grade high score" record with a 265* run onslaught against Bundalaguah. Coming in at the fall of the first wicket in the tenth over when the score was 25, his mammoth innings helped take the score to 402. He accounted for 70% of the 377 runs scored while he was at the crease. 

Burgiel becomes the third 1st grade cricketer to score a first grade double century and the first to do so on turf.  Neville Marchesi and Laurie Stephenson both made hard wicket double centuries in the 1960's.

The breakdown of Adrian's scoring shots is as follows ...

5 x 6s = 30
20 x 4s = 80
15 x 3s = 45
36 x 2s = 72
38 x 1s = 38
Total      265 not out

RYE’S recruiting spree has delivered a genuine star to Rowley Reserve - stout-hearted former Richmond dasher Mark Chaffey.

The 30-year-old signed with the Demons last month and has already thrown himself into pre-season training.

“He’s looking really fit,” Rye coach Steve Ryan said.

“He’s pretty keen.”

Chaffey was a much-loved Tiger, playing 166 games with Richmond between 1997 and 2006.

He was known as a hard-running defender, but Ryan said he may play in the midfield with Rye.

“He’ll play probably on ball or across half back,” Ryan said.

“We could play him anywhere really. I’ll just wait and see how our team shapes up.”

Title: Where are they now? - Brian "Whale" Roberts (Herald-Sun)
Post by: one-eyed on December 14, 2008, 05:25:12 AM
This isn't on the web so I typed it out...

Where are they now? - Brian "Whale" Roberts
By Rod Nicholson
Sunday Herald-Sun | 14 Dec 2008, Page S23

Rod Nicholson talks to former Richmond footballer, Brian "Whale" Roberts

THE MOMENT

During pre-season training in the 1970s, Roberts and teammate Robert McGhie dodged a run around the Botanic Gardens. Upon seeing coach Tommy Hafey approach, the Whale hid in bushes next to the duckpond and called out "quack, quack, quack".

THEN

"They were really tough days under Hafey. Blokes worked so hard they vomited. So every opportunity you got you beat the system," he said.

"There was only one light at Punt Rd Oval in those days (late 1960s and early 1970s), so I'd slide away and hide in the truck shed instead of doing laps.

"I've hitch-hiked a lift during a long run. I've hidden in bushes by the duck pond and joined in at the appropriate time when the boys came around for the second lap of running the tan.

"One day Hafey sent out (assistant coach) Col Saddington to force me to run hard the final mile. When he returned he told Tommy he couldn't find me. I was already back, pretending to be exhausted with tap water splashed over me to make it all look real. Hafey was furious. It didn't take him two seconds to work it out - that I had not passed Saddington but somehow had made it home!

"Summer training was brutal. We had December off but Tommy insisted we all return with three miles running in our legs every day. If Francis Bourke couldn't run one day, he'd do six miles the next. Everyone had to fill in a daily log book. When December 31 arrived, I hadn't run a yard. So I filled in the book: '100 miles, from Melbourne to Seymour and return - by car. Nice run it was too.' Boy, did I get punished for that!

"When I went to South Melbourne we were forced to lift bricks over our heads and do all sorts of ridiculous exercises with them. I found a couple of rubber bricks at my hotel and took them along. Everyone thought I was Mr Universe the way I did the exercises. I just put the rubber bricks back in my bag and took them back to the pub after each session."

BEYOND FOOTBALL

"A footballer is in the prime of his life and you must balance everything. If you are not having a good time then, when will you? You feel indestructible at that age. So we went to the pub after training. Socialising knitted the team together, not training or all that stuff they go on with today," he said.

"You wouldn't get me bungy jumping or climbing mountains or parachuting and that sort of stuff. I would get dizzy standing on a match box.

"We bonded with a beer and we would die for each other on the field. There has to be laughter and fun around a club. I'm not sure being a sprinter, a jumper, a parachute champ or a rock climbing mountain goat makes you a better team man."

NOW

"I'm out of the pub game now, having left the Duke of Wellington in the city. I've had some great times in pubs. I remember the day Carlton's Val Perovic drank 37 cans on Mad Monday after the Blues won the 1981 Grand Final," he said.

"And yes, I used to drink more than 50 six-ounce glasses of beer a day, with a record of 97. It wasn't easy being in seven shouts at the same time!

"I went overseas (to Europe) last year and I'm planning to go back next year, hopefully to watch some of the Ashes action.

"Otherwise I walk my dog down the beach every day and catch up with mates."

Tim Fleming is captain of the Ammos side playing the bushfire charity game against the EFL. Cam Howat is playing for the Ammos as well. Matt Greig will be playing for the EFL.

Fleming said he crossed the border and played for South Adelaide in 2005 after he was axed by the Tigers and then went OS in 2006. He's been playing with Old Xavs since 2007.

He's been following our fortunes and thinks we've got a good list now to make the finals. He used "we" whenever he mentioned Richmond too.

Former Richmond player Nick Daffy in Geelong for family support

CLAN: Nick Daffy has added to the Geelong clan by bringing wife Brodie and children Shilah and Archie. Photo: TONY KERRIGAN


FORMER AFL player Nick Daffy has new designs for Geelong.

The Richmond game-breaker has shifted to the city with his hometown bride Brodie and is revelling in new opportunities to pursue family and business life.

"I couldn't talk it up enough," he said.
Have your say on the feedback form below

Mt Gambier export Daffy, 35, married Geelong girl Brodie Skene-Haygarth and they have children Shilah, 1, and Archie, seven months.

Geelong is a meeting place for their clans.

"We needed a bit of support and family behind us so we decided to come up here," Daffy said.

"As a Mount Gambier boy it's nice to get back to, I guess, just a nice environment."

He will relish the proximity when he joins family celebrating the 100th birthday of his Geelong uncle Frank Daffy tomorrow.

Nick Daffy had prominent partnerships in a string of Melbourne hotels after his retirement from football but now has interest in only The Lounge in Docklands.

He is now mobilising his hospitality experience through his new business Venue Design Landscaping, which conceives, designs and executes makeovers for hotels and offices.

He said future schooling options for their children were a certain lure to Geelong and he sees so much going for the city including its location and property prices.

"And its beautiful bay, Corio Bay, is just sensational," he said.

Daffy was an ardent Geelong supporter before playing 165 games for Richmond and one for Sydney. He won the Tigers' best and fairest in 1998.

He said family had largely taken priority over football on weekends but he is helping out occasionally as an informal adviser with Geelong West, where his brother-in-law Hayden Skene plays, and he is following a mate playing with Newtown-Chilwell.

And old allegiances linger.

"I won't mind if Archie wants to barrack for Geelong," he said.

"I hope they do well. Well, they do anyway."

Krakouer let out to lead prison team

26/May/2009

JAILED Richmond footballer Andrew Krakouer is let outside the razor wire as part of a Wooroloo prison team that is so good its average winning margin is 151 points - and it is all in the name of rehabilitation.

Krakouer, who played 102 games for the Tigers before being jailed for a minimum 16 months last year for a brutal assault outside a Fremantle nightclub in 2006, is proving to be the star of the team of inmates that is undefeated in the suburban Mercantile Football League.

The Wooroloo Bombers are so good, in fact, they are yet to score less than 151 points in a single game.

Prison recreation officer Dave Brown said there were several players who would “walk into WAFL football, they are that good”.

The Bombers is one of several prison sporting teams allowed out on weekends to compete in local competitions.

Inmates must satisfy stringent security checks and display exemplary behaviour before they can be considered to play football, basketball or soccer outside the prison gates.

Mr Brown said community sports competitions were playing a key role in rehabilitating criminals at the minimum-security prison.

Wooroloo holds about 270 inmates and about 40 players are registered with the football team.

Mr Brown said players knew they were under more scrutiny than anyone.

“Any prisoner at Wooroloo is eligible to play in the football side, but it comes down to their commitment and discipline,” Mr Brown said.

“If someone misbehaves in their workplace or in the community, they don’t get the opportunity to go out.”

All sports teams operated under a charter that spells out the conditions under which they are released to play.

Security guards supervise matches and no inmate had escaped while playing sport.

The prison team has its own form of discipline and a tribunal.

Prisoners take their football seriously, if their training regime and recent results are any indication.

“They must train three nights a week, and when I say train, they probably train harder than any community side that I’ve ever seen,” Mr Brown said.

“If they can show that same discipline and commitment when they get out, they will go a long way in the community.”

Tiger Tivendale is ready to ROC on

Adam McNicol | June 21, 2009

WHILE he was dashing along the wing for Richmond, Greg Tivendale always believed he would eventually return to the club of his youth. But even last season, when he often found himself running around with Coburg in the VFL, he was confident such a move was still some time away.

"I would like to think I could've played for another year, maybe two," Tivendale admitted last weekend. Unfortunately for the veteran of 188 AFL games, this was not how then-coach Terry Wallace saw it.

"We were on reasonable terms," Tivendale said. "I'd go in each week to see 'Plough' if I had a good game for Coburg and he'd tell me why I wasn't going to be playing. We spoke the whole way through and he took me aside with a couple of weeks to go and said I would be delisted.

"I got a farewell game at the end, which was good. You move on. I'm not bitter or anything. Looking at how they're travelling now, it probably wasn't such a bad time to get out."

Tivendale contemplated spending a year or two at a VFL club, before dismissing that option. "I just thought it's a comp with a lot of young guys on the way up, aspiring to play league footy. I was going the other way," he said.

The call of home was also strong. The Tivendale family has a long connection with the Rythdale-Officer-Cardinia Football Club, better known as ROC. Greg's parents remain heavily involved, while his sister, Amy, plays netball and his brother, Ben, captains the senior footy team. So, at the age of 29, Tivendale left behind the MCG and Punt Road Oval to continue his career at the more rustic surrounds of the Officer Recreation Reserve.

"I always wanted to come back here at some stage," he said. "It's become a big family day for us, so it's all good."

Tivendale is ROC's greatest export. He made his debut at Richmond during Jeff Gieschen's ill-fated reign, and in his early days often thrilled crowds with his pace and trademark long, running goals. He tasted finals action under Danny Frawley, but some years later, as the Tigers' expected revival under Wallace failed to materialise, many fans made him a scapegoat for the team's horrendous skill level.

"When you're playing a sport like AFL there's plenty of people out there who are going to have their opinions on everything about footy," Tivendale reflected. "Some people like the way you go about it and others don't. It's water off a duck's back really. That's just how it is."

Yet, he has mostly good memories of his time at Richmond.
"I'm pretty satisfied, especially when you consider I missed out in the draft and had to come through the rookie list. To survive for 11 years and play 180-odd games is something to look back on and be reasonably proud of I think."

Tivendale, who turned 30 in April, admits to being shocked that the Tigers have imploded again.

"I honestly thought they'd play finals and maybe push top four. There's plenty of talent on the list. I think that Carlton debacle really took the wind out of their sails."

But local footy is where Tivendale's focus now lies. While he was away, ROC went through its own share of upheaval. The Kangaroos won a West Gippsland league premiership in 2002, before deciding to change competitions in 2005.

Adjusting to life in the Casey-Cardinia league, which includes ROC's long-time rivals Beaconsfield and Pakenham, along with suburban powerhouses such as Narre Warren and Berwick, has been no easy feat. Last year the Roos won only three games.

"It's much more professional in this league and that's where ROC has struggled a bit," said Ben Tivendale. "One of the hardest changes is that we still have a bush footy club culture, but we've got to start thinking more like the metro clubs now. We haven't got a great ground or pavilion but it's coming. We'll have much better facilities in the next couple of years."

However, the mood of the club lifted immeasurably when Greg announced he was coming home late last year. "There was genuine excitement," said senior coach Kris Fletcher, who had only just joined the Roos, after a distinguished career at Beaconsfield. "The whole place was buzzing."

By round one, the supporters were itching to see their local hero in action, and they turned out in record numbers for ROC's opening match of the season against Hampton Park. A five-goal win meant the social rooms were jumping after the game.

Since then, the Kangaroos have come back to earth thanks to a couple of thumpings from top sides Doveton and Pakenham, although their 12-goal final-quarter onslaught against Keysborough three weeks ago showed they were not done.

"We have a lot of young kids playing at the moment," said Ben Tivendale. "So we know what the bigger picture is. We're on the right track."

Like the team, Tivendale's form has been up and down, as he adjusts to the slower pace of grass-roots footy.

After slipping under the radar during much of his AFL career, he has to deal with taggers on a weekly basis. Eight days ago against Cranbourne he was scragged every time he went near the ball, but received little aid from the umpires, much to the dismay of the many ROC followers watching.

Occasionally he lashed out in frustration and a few scuffles ensued, during which he was always backed up by Ben. "Just for the two of us, we're really enjoying playing alongside each other," Greg said. "We look out for each other."

Cranbourne kicked away in the last quarter to win easily, but Tivendale finished with two goals and was named ROC's best player.

A series of crucial matches over the next month will determine if he can lead ROC on a late charge towards the finals. Even if that doesn't happen, the former Tiger is making plenty of friends. "He's good but he's not arrogant at all," said Fletcher. "If you didn't follow his career you wouldn't know he'd played nearly 200 AFL games. He's so easy-going and he's happy to talk to anyone, whether it's the best player in the side or the bloke missing out in the twos. He's just a genuinely nice bloke really."

ON Saturday, Peninsula Old Boys made what is the biggest trek required in the Ammos this season when they played Old Westbourne..... In the seniors match, the Peninsula Pirates scored a strong victory to maintain their spot on top, with the president's sons Jim and Will Coghlan among the best players. John Rombotis, the 32-year-old former Fitzroy, Port Adelaide and Richmond player, kicked three goals and was also among the Pirates' best.

Jewell coup

THE Jewells, Tiger premiership coach Tony, model wife Margaret and Bushranger cricket star Nick, combined as a team to take the $1000 cash raffle prize at the Sorrento Sharks celebrity luncheon. With the Ashes at stake in England, Nick was guest speaker, Margie became the barrel girl and Tiger legend Tony, back from cruising the canals of France, watched her pick his number out of the hat. The win was as timely as being at Punt Rd for Richmond's last flag.

Ricky McLean's horse Broadway's Best is running this weekend in harness racing's Australasian Breeders Crown 3YO Fillies Final at Tabcorp Park, Melton.

BROADWAYS' BEST PRICE IN AGES
20 August 2009

(http://www.harness.org.au/news/images/main//2020.jpg)

Entering the Tabcorp Australasian Breeders Crown semi finals, bookies would have been knocked off their stands had they offered black and white figures about Broadways Best to win the 3YO Fillies Final.

She'd already won Victoria's two richest races for her age group - the Victoria Oaks and Vicbred Super Series Final - and had her task made easier when the likes of Lauraella, For Dear Life and Sheer Royalty didn't make it to the heats.
But after being run down by Make Mine Cullen in her semi and coming up with a back-row draw for the $170,000 Group 1 final, punters can get $2.60 about the daughter of Village Jasper who is friendless with TAB Sportsbet.
Gisborne trainer Shannon McLean conceded things haven't gone to plan the last couple of weeks, but hasn't given up on his stable star.

Barking Dog owner Greg Dodds recently teamed up with Richmond Tigers star, turned designer Nick Daffy to revamp his Geelong West pub.

''It's an investment that has to be made to keep it in vogue,'' Mr Dodds said.

''Nick has brought a touch of the Docklands and an inner-city feel to the place.

''We cater for people who don't want to go into the city where there is a lack of taxis and the inability to get home.

''I don't mind spending money on a place. Build it and they will come.''

Chris Hyde came equal second in the O&M league's B&F count. His team Albury is playing in the GF on Sunday.

In the Ovens and Murray league's Morris Medal count on Monday, former Port Adelaide and North Melbourne midfielder Michael Stevens, the 28-year-old brother of former Roos champ Anthony, scored three votes in the final game to steal victory by two votes. Corowa-Rutherglen's Sam Carpenter, the one-armed player originally from Frankston, Albury's Chris Hyde, the former Richmond player, and Wangaratta's Matt Kelly were equal second. Yarrawonga and Albury are expected to attract upwards of 15,000 to the O&M grand final at Lavington on Sunday.

Title: Chris Hyde's Tigers win the flag (Border Mail)

Hyde seeks and finds everything he wanted
BRETT KOHLHAGEN
21/09/2009 10:53:00 AM

CHRIS Hyde had two reasons for signing with Albury at the start of the season.

Firstly, he craved the opportunity to play under coach Paul Spargo after spending time with him at Richmond and, secondly, he believed the Tigers were a genuine shot at winning the Ovens and Murray premiership.

The second part of the deal was sealed at Lavington Panthers Oval yesterday when the unbeaten Tigers trounced Yarrawonga by 77 points to stamp themselves as one of the great O and M teams.

Hyde received the unexpected bonus of picking up the Did Simpson medal along the way.

“I have played at the top level, but it was fairly lean pickings,” Hyde said.

“I never really dreamt of a premiership in my first year back in the country and this is

fantastic.

“I’m over the moon.

“I’m pretty short of words actually.

“It’s been fantastic right through from the club to the boys and to go through undefeated is something I would never have dreamt of.

“To come away with a premiership medallion is an unbelievable feeling.

“The medal is great, but the premiership was what we really wanted.”

Hyde, who was delisted by Richmond at the end of last season and soon became swamped by offers from O and M and interstate clubs, capped off a stellar season with 22 touches including nine in the second term as Albury swamped its opponents with a brilliant display of running football.

While many at the ground were shocked that teammate Joel Mackie was overlooked for the Did Simpson medal, the silky left-footer was outstanding despite being tagged by Dean Bigger.

Hyde said Albury’s wealth of options was a decisive factor in the victory with Shaun Daly, Mackie, Jayden Kotzur, Ben Fixter, Jason Sheather, Andrew Carey and Charles Gaylard being rotated heavily through the centre square.

Hyde said he was likely to return next season despite working at Tumut as a ranger.

“There are a lot of quality players and quality blokes at this club and I’m rapt to be a part of it,” he said.

“I think people actually think Tumut is a bit further away than it really is.

“It’s only two hours.

“Blokes who travel from Melbourne travel a lot further and the highway has been opened up which helps.

“I’ve loved every minute of it.

“This caps it off.”

ARARAT - Ararat's favourite sporting son Scott Turner will trade football boots for a crown this month when he takes on the role of King of the Ararat Advertiser Golden Gateway Festival.

Born and bred in Ararat, the former Richmond footballer has become an active member of the community since moving home with his young family three years ago.

Turner is best known locally as the coach of the Ararat Football Club, and occasionally still pulls on the boots himself.

A supporter of junior football, Turner is actively involved in son Paddy's football team, Warriors, and co-ordinated Ararat's Auskick program for two years.

Turner has plenty of experience as a role model to young people, both in a sporting capacity and in his role with Best Community Development.

A keen sportsman, Turner is also a member of the Chalambar Golf Club, enjoys playing basketball with the Ararat Association and part-owns a horse with local trainer Michael Bellman.

Although this is Turner's first year of being involved in the festival, he has some idea of what to expect.

''When I first lived in Ararat I was brought up with the children's day on the Friday and billy cart races,'' he said.

''It was always a lot of fun and really good for the children.''

Turner was surprised to receive the call from the Mayor, Cr Gwenda Allgood, offering him the opportunity to be this year's Golden Gateway Festival King.

''Gwenda rang me up and asked me if I'd like to be King, and I just couldn't say no.

''I've seen plenty of Golden Gateway festivals over the years and I'm just really looking forward to meeting people that I haven't seen for a long time and also all the regular faces.''

Last year's King Brian Collins will hand over the crown to Turner during next Friday's Festival launch at the Ararat Performing Arts Centre.

Turner's first duty as King will be to declare the release of balloons to mark the opening of the festival. The event is open to the entire community and school and kindergarten children will be on hand to release the balloons.

The 2009 Festival Queen will be announced later that evening at the Coronation Ball.

''It's going to be a couple of good weeks,'' Turner said.

''I'm sure it will be a lot of fun just helping around the town and seeing everyone enjoy themselves.''

YARRAWONGA has finally found the ruckman it has craved, signing former AFL star and Myrtleford bigman Steve McKee for 2010.

McKee, 31, was drafted to Richmond from Myrtleford with pick No.55 in the 1996 national draft and played 84 games for the Tigers and Collingwood between 1998 and 2004, including the Magpies’ 2002 grand final loss to the Brisbane Lions.

Brian Leys has just been appointed CEO of WAFL club Perth Demons, that has one A. Jarman esq as senior coach.
Brian Leys, now that brings back a memory.
Princess Park V Fitzroy, first time Hoggy fronted up against the Tiges from memory. Richmond has possession between half forward and the wing. Forward structure working ok and there is nice space left for a forward to lead into around CHF. Brian Leys ambles down and stands right in the hole, dragging his man with him. I thought this was pretty stupid and said as much.

A lady in front of me turns around and tells me he is trying his best. Leys was a tryer, and I admitted as much, but stuck by that being a stupid piece of football and tried to explain why. She then proceeded to tell me that he was only following the coaches instructions. As I'm trying to tell her that Northey is not so stupid to give such instructions the siren sounds the end of the quarter and off she storms.

The lady sitting beside her turns around and says, "dont worry about it, thats Brian Leys Mother".

He did nothing else wrong in my eyes either for the rest of the game  ::)

Gee, I'd forgotten all about that untill I read his name here. I did wonder if she ever said anything to him about it..

Paddy Steinfort is the new midfield and ruck coach at the Western Jets


The Jets moved quick though to keep their pre-season preparations flowing smoothly with Sexton revealing former Richmond player Pat Steinfort has signed on to fill Liberatore’s role.

“He will be our midfield coach and he has been a ruckman so he will combine both those roles. He is a young fellow, played league footy himself. Came through the TAC cup system himself, has been involved in leadership work.”

A former Oakleigh Chargers player, Steinfort was Richmond’s first round pick (number 16) in the 1996 national draft but did not crack it for a senior game despite spending five seasons on the Tigers list.

The Albury Tigers recruiting focus will now centre on delisted Richmond player Kayne Pettifer who was overlooked in yesterday’s AFL pre-season and rookie drafts.

Pettifer, 27, was picked up with the No.9 selection in the 2000 draft and played 113 matches and kicked 132 goals for the AFL club before being shown the door.

Albury and Yarrawonga are vying for his signature with home club Kyabram believed to be a long shot.

The classy half-forward is expected to make a decision within the next week.

Simon Fletcher plucked from St Mary's for Gold Coast role
Bradley Green
December 28th, 2009


THE Geelong connection with the new Gold Coast AFL club continues to grow with Simon Fletcher appointed its player development manager.

The 31-year-old will shift north to take up the position next year ahead of the GC 17's introduction to the VFL ahead of its expected entry into the AFL in 2011.

A Gold Coast Football Club spokesman said the former Carlton and Richmond midfielder's work with Leading Teams Australia as a leadership and development facilitator played a major role behind its decision to appoint him to the position.

The Gold Coast's gain is St Mary's loss with Fletcher leaving the GFL club next year.

He was a member of the Saints' 2008 premiership team after returning to Geelong when he was delisted by the Tigers at the end of 2004.

A former Geelong Falcon and Geelong rookie-list player, Fletcher played 90 games with Carlton and Richmond between 1999 and 2004. He kicked 30 goals and was the Blues' best first year player in 1999 and also won their reserves best and fairest that same season.

Petts has gone home and signed with Kyabram

Pettifer snubs Albury, Yarrawonga
Brett Kohlhagen
13 Jan, 2010

OVENS and Murray heavyweights Albury and Yarrawonga have missed out on the prized signature of delisted Richmond player Kayne Pettifer.

After months of speculation about his playing future, Pettifer earlier this week signed with Goulburn Valley club Kyabram where his family is heavily involved.

The news is a blow for Albury and Yarrawonga which have been in regular contact with the classy forward since the end of last season due to ties developed at Richmond through Paul Spargo and Chris Hyde and Pigeon coach Craig Ednie.

Kyabram president Peter Croxford said yesterday the Bombers were thrilled to sign Pettifer considering the approaches he had received from Ovens and Murray and Melbourne clubs.

“It’s fantastic that Kayne has decided to come back to Ky,” Croxford said.

“Obviously he attracted a fair bit of interest from other clubs, but his two sisters play netball for us and his mum is also involved so we always thought we were a good chance.

“I was quietly confident that family ties and mates would see Kayne play at Kyabram, but you never know.

“He’ll be fantastic for us.”

Pettifer, who kicked 132 goals in 113 matches for Richmond before being cut at the end of last season, recently became involved in a business in Melbourne which may also have played a part in his decision.

Kyabram lost to Mansfield in last year’s GV grand final and has bolstered its playing stocks by signing Redan’s Brett Dickinson, Cairns forward Heath Barnett and Craigieburn’s Paul O’Neil.

Anyone see Timmy Powell on the tele last weekend. He was on a TV show (can't remember the name of it) where Ernie dingo took him on a holiday with his family somewhere because his boss at the brewery called in and said he had something like 25 weeks holidays owing and he needed to take a break.

Yeah I saw the start of it; it's called "No Life, No Leave"

They said something like "Former AFL Star Tim Powell"  :rollin :rollin

Brodders to play with Camperdown......

Thanks Pies: Broderick back where it all started
GREG BEST
09 Apr, 2010 01:20 PM


FORMER AFL star Paul Broderick will kick-start Camperdown's 2010 season by playing tomorrow against Cobden in a thank you gesture to the club where his career began.

Broderick will make his first appearance in Magpies colours since the 1987 Hampden league grand final when he runs out with Camperdown's reserves side at Leura Oval.

Now 40, the former Fitzroy and Richmond onballer yesterday revealed he had agreed to play ahead of his guest speaking role at the opening of the club's new social rooms tomorrow night.

He said he wanted to play alongside the club's emerging youngsters and encourage their development - something the club had done for him when he was rising through the ranks.

"It's been a helluva long time since I played with Camperdown," he told The Standard.

"With my commitments down here (in Melbourne) I haven't been able to give that sort of support back to the club and it would be nice to finish that way. That's where it all started, within the Camperdown environment, and there are a lot of people who supported me and it would be nice to go back and say thanks."

He said he was looking forward to the experience.

"They have struggled to get numbers consistently and if I can play with some of the young guys coming through and get them to enjoy their football and help them stay engaged, then that would be good."

Broderick, who played with the Marcellan Bald Eagles in the over 35 veterans competition in Melbourne last year, said he had been running a couple of times a week and was in reasonable shape "but not anything like I used to be".

He said he had enjoyed the veterans competition which was only played every second week so participants could recover to play the next game.

"Don't expect too much out of me," he said.

"I will get more heckling from the Camperdown crowd than the Cobden crowd." He said with his children's sporting commitments increasing, his days of playing were just about over.

He grew up in Camperdown and still returns for family celebrations.

He played in Camperdown's 1986 and 1987 grand final sides which were beaten by the mighty Grant Thomas-coached Warrnambool teams which strung four premierships together in that era.

"We had some good sides and just couldn't get over the line against them."

He was recruited by Fitzroy for the 1988 season and played 93 games with the Lions until he was traded to Richmond for forward Jeff Hogg for the 1994 season. He had a stellar career with the Tigers, playing 169 games and kicked 90 goals until he retired at the end of 2001. He won the Tigers' best and fairest in 1996 and figured prominently in most seasons.

Camperdown public relations officer Peter Conheady was delighed Broderick would once again don the black and white.

"He's capable of playing in the seniors but he didn't want to upset the team balance," he said.

"It's terrific for the young fellas in the twos to have someone of his calibre playing with them.

"It's just a one-off and his way of giving a little bit back to the club."

Tom Roach is close to getting state game for WA.


Roach in frame for a second State jumper
DALE MILLER,
The West Australian April 30, 2010


(http://l.yimg.com/fv/xp/wan/20100430/12/2101037110.jpg?x=292&sig=NDeB3kYCmmRpLqbhWJCWMQ--)


Framed at the home of Swan Districts midfielder Tom Roach is a jumper bearing the iconic symbol of one of WA's greatest rivals.

The 24-year-old's one and only appearance for Victoria came two years ago in a game South Australia won by 65 points, but the experience made enough impact on Roach for him to permanently frame the Big V.

The one-time Richmond player now has his sights set on earning a companion jumper bearing the black swan in a nod to the new home that has breathed fresh life into his football career.

Roach is one of four Swans players in the initial WA squad that will attempt to defeat Victoria for the first time in two decades at Medibank Stadium on May 22.

He will be in elite company if selected for the final team, joining the likes of WA football greats Graham "Polly" Farmer, Barry Cable and Graham Moss as footballers to play for both States.

"I don't think many people would have done that, so it'd be a great honour," Roach said.

The onballer has the football pedigree for his name to sit comfortably amongst those legends, with his father, Michael, finishing his 200-game career with Richmond as a premiership player and a two-time Coleman medallist with 607 goals to his name.

Roach's time with the Tigers was more short-lived, playing 11 matches across three seasons before being de-listed at the end of 2006.

He was first approached by Swans in 2008, but held off until the end of last year after winning his second premiership with VFL side North Ballarat.

"I've won two grand finals and played some good footy there and just thought it'd be time to set some new challenges and have a crack in a different league," Roach said.

"I'd always wanted to play WAFL footy because of the big grounds and the open spaces, which suits my game. I thought the time was right."

A bout of plantar fasciitis - inflammation of the tendon along the sole of the foot - limited Roach's pre-season and delayed his WAFL debut until round three.

He has progressively improved in his four league appearances this year, collecting 29 and 31 disposals in his past two matches.

Roach said he had enjoyed being back in the company of forward Andrew Krakouer, a teammate during his time at Richmond.

Krakouer, who joined gutsy midfielder Josh Roberts and defender Tallan Ames as the other Swans players picked for the WA squad, has averaged 26 disposals a game this year and booted six goals in a stunning return after serving an 18-month prison sentence.

Roach is relishing the idea of taking on Victorian coach Gerald Fitzgerald, his coach during his time with North Ballarat, and claimed WA would have an advantage playing at home.

"The major difference is the (WAFL) competition's a lot quicker," he said. "The ball moves faster, the skills are probably a little bit higher, but there's a lot less contact and a lot less stoppages so it is very much a different competition in terms of the way the footy is played."

Best recruits bar none

A MONTH is a long time in football. Especially if a couple of former AFL stars arrive at your club.

Just three weeks ago Montrose was second bottom in the Eastern Football League. Then former Richmond ruckman Troy Simmonds decided to join his father's old club.

Three wins later and Montrose is knocking on the top four, and another old Tiger has joined in - Kane Johnson, recently retired Richmond captain and dual premiership player with Adelaide.

The Tigers pair share an apartment. Sporting Life hears that Johnson was tired of hearing what a good time his flatmate was having, and decided to pull on the boots.

Johnson was presented with his jumper at training last night, and will make his debut this weekend at home against Wantirna South.

Great news for Montrose. In just four home matches this year they have surpassed last season's entire bar takings. Another bumper crowd is expected.

Kane still able
The Age
July 6, 2010



COMEBACKS are often fraught, as former Richmond skipper and dual premiership player Kane Johnson discovered after turning out for for Montrose Football Club.

Johnson played his first match for Montrose on the weekend, joining former Tigers ruckman and flatmate Troy Simmonds at the club.

''Kane played midfield for most of the day and in the dying minutes of the game slid across the wet surface and into a Carpet Court fence sign,'' a witness told Sporting Life. ''He sliced his leg open to the bone and ended up in hospital requiring 11 stitches.''

Johnson has shown he is made from pretty stern stuff - he plans to be back on the field in two weeks.

The day was much better for Simmonds, who booted six goals in a best-on-ground performance.

Local article about Troy Simmonds and Kane Johnson at Montrose FC in Div.2 of the EFL

---------------------------------------

MONTROSE coach Mark Garthwaite is looking at the long-term benefits of high-profile recruits Troy Simmonds and Kane Johnson signing-on at the club.

Although the star pair’s signings have enhanced the Demons’ EFL Division 2 finals prospects this season, Garthwaite said he’d rather the club’s youngsters learn as much as they can from the former-AFL players.

“As a coach you want to develop the young players at the football club,” Garthwaite said.

“I think with Kane and Troy, with where they’ve played and the knowledge they’ve got through their careers, they can help fast-track our younger players and learn from these guys that have played at a higher level. I’ve said to my players to ask these guys (Kane and Troy) for as much information as possible because they’re more than willing to help.”

A couple of much-maligned ex-Tigers had big games in the WAFL over the weekend.....

Jarrad Oakley-Nicholls (East Perth)

Played his best game of the season since returning to WA to play with East Perth after four years with Richmond. The Eagles rookie-listed player booted six goals from 23 possessions and nine marks  as East Perth hammered Perth by 117 points at EFTel Oval.

Andrew Krakouer (Swan Districts)

Outstanding game from the Sandover Medal favourite as he collected 27 disposals, took seven marks, laid six tackles and kicked four goals for Swan Districts in the draw with the ladder-leading Claremont.

FORMER Richmond forward Andrew Krakouer has set his sights on a remarkable return to the AFL in 2011, with a standout WAFL season for Swan Districts reigniting his ambition to play at the top level.

Krakouer, who was released from prison last November after serving more than a year behind bars for serious assault, is widely tipped to win this year's Sandover Medal as the WAFL's fairest and best player.

The 27-year-old has averaged more than 25 possessions in his 18 games this season, kicking 32 goals as one of the state competition's most damaging players.

Now, with opportunities almost certain to present at this year's NAB AFL Draft, Krakouer is aiming to add to the 102 AFL games he played with the Tigers between 2001 and 2007.

There were no such excuses on Saturday. Montmorency simply outplayed the Tigers, kicking six unanswered goals in the opening quarter and maintaining its lead from there. Pat Fitzgerald and Dean Limbach, the former Essendon and Richmond player, kicked seven and six goals respectively. The final margin was 19 points.

Hyde a highlight in Tigers' gutsy victory
Chris Mitchell
21 Sep, 2010 09:51 PM


ALBURY midfielder Chris Hyde has written a new chapter in his stunning Tigers career, starring in the grand final win against Yarrawonga at Lavington Oval.

Hyde, who played 93 AFL games for Richmond, has enjoyed unprecedented success since arriving at the Tigers last season, winning the Did Simpson Medal as best-on-ground in last year's winning grand final, and going close yesterday.

Originally from Barooga, Hyde now has his eyes set on a third consecutive flag with Albury.

"I tell you what, it doesn't get much better than this," he said.

"The twos got up, the B-graders got up, makes for the best night ever. If you bottled this you'd be a millionaire."

Despite just nine kicks, six handballs and a goal, Hyde's composure and attack at the contest were instrumental in the win.

The 28-year-old paid tribute to the club's professionalism, and coach Paul Spargo for a demanding preseason.

"The professionalism and how hard these boys train, it's taken me by surprise," Hyde said.

"The work these guys put in, and it's driven by Spargs because he's a fitness man and he loves that sort of stuff, is unbelievable.

"We train hard, we play hard and we enjoy the good times."

Paddy Steinfort will coach Mazenod in the VAFA Premier C competition next year.

The former-Richmond AFL footballer, and Coburg VFL captain, has taken the reins from David Murray.

A qualified physiotherapist, Steinfort worked with elite athletes in South Australia before taking over as lead facilitator for Leading Teams in New Zealand.

In his role he tailored leadership and cultural programs for the national cricket, soccer and basketball teams as well as two Rugby Super 14 sides.

Steinfort worked with the Nodders last season, building club programs, and his leadership qualities caught the eye of club officials.

Pettifer joins Royalty
By Kim Hagdorn
23 November 2010 07:02PM EST



FORMER Richmond utility Kayne Pettifer will continue a journeyman’s football ride after switching to Western Australian club East Perth.

East Perth has also emerged as the leading candidate to win the services of recently departed Richmond big man Graham Polak.

Polak, 26, is weighing up playing and employment offers from East Perth as well as his original WAFL club East Fremantle.

Pettifer, 28, heads west after playing the 2010 season with his home town club Kyabram in Victorian country in the Goulburn Valley.

He was de-listed by the Tigers at the end of 2009 after playing 113 games in nine seasons since his AFL debut in 2001.

Pettifer was somewhat of a star in the strong Goulburn league where he booted 83 goals as a key forward.

Polak ace in pack for Royals
RUSSELL REID,
The West Australian
November 25, 2010



East Perth pulled off a pre-season recruiting coup yesterday when they signed former Fremantle and Richmond player Graham Polak.

Polak's decision is a huge boost for the Royals and the final piece in the club's recruiting jigsaw after they had signed other former AFL players Kayne Pettifer and Josh Smith earlier in the week.

East Perth beat Polak's original WAFL club East Fremantle and at least two others in the scramble for Polak, who bowed out of the AFL in August after 111 games.

The Royals can accommodate Polak, Smith and Pettifer in their salary cap and under the WAFL's player points system after the retirements of David Wirrpanda and Luke Webster, and departure of Andrew Lovett back to Melbourne and Jason Roe to the Northern Territory Football League.

East Perth football manager Mark Winnett said the trio would make a difference in 2011.

"We had these three players as our key recruiting targets this year and are rapt to secure them all," Winnett said.

"We are confident Polly, Josh and Kayne will play a lot of footy for us."

East Fremantle chief executive Adam Kelly said his club offered Polak a three-year deal and was disappointed not to secure the talented player but understood why the Royals had been successful.

"It was because of the career path that East Perth had put forward and we knew that was the major issue for Graham in coming back to WA," Kelly said.

"We also understand Graham's family connection as well, having had both his father and grand- father play at East Perth, as well as his uncle."

The trio have all signed two-year deals. Pettifer, 28, played 113 games and kicked 132 goals for Richmond between 2001 and 2009, claiming the club champion award in 2006. Smith, 24, played 11 games for North Melbourne from 2008 to 2010.

He was a member of VFL premiership teams with North Ballarat in 2008, 2009 and 2010, said that hat-trick of flags made missing out on a regular game with the Kangaroos easier to deal with.

"If you are not playing ones it makes it a bit easier when you go back and are winning premierships at VFL level," said Smith, originally from West Perth.

"Hopefully in the next couple of years I can add a WAFL premiership and that's what I'm hoping for.

"West Perth are a great club but footy has many different twists and turns and hopefully I can have a bit of success with the Royals."

Busy Brown not keen to kick on
By Chris de Kretser and Daryl Timms
Sat 11 Dec 2010, Page 72



FORMER Western Bulldog and Richmond forward Nathan Brown has itchy feet after being out of the game for a season.

He has been approached to join ex-Tiger teammates Troy Simmonds and Kane Johnson at Eastern Football League club Montrose.

While Brown said he would love to have a kick, his media commitments will stop him from pulling the boots on again.

He has gigs with Triple M and Channel 9's Sunday Footy Show.

Polak ace in pack for Royals
RUSSELL REID,
The West Australian
November 25, 2010



East Perth pulled off a pre-season recruiting coup yesterday when they signed former Fremantle and Richmond player Graham Polak.

Polak's decision is a huge boost for the Royals and the final piece in the club's recruiting jigsaw after they had signed other former AFL players Kayne Pettifer and Josh Smith earlier in the week.

East Perth beat Polak's original WAFL club East Fremantle and at least two others in the scramble for Polak, who bowed out of the AFL in August after 111 games.

The Royals can accommodate Polak, Smith and Pettifer in their salary cap and under the WAFL's player points system after the retirements of David Wirrpanda and Luke Webster, and departure of Andrew Lovett back to Melbourne and Jason Roe to the Northern Territory Football League.

East Perth football manager Mark Winnett said the trio would make a difference in 2011.

"We had these three players as our key recruiting targets this year and are rapt to secure them all," Winnett said.

"We are confident Polly, Josh and Kayne will play a lot of footy for us."

East Fremantle chief executive Adam Kelly said his club offered Polak a three-year deal and was disappointed not to secure the talented player but understood why the Royals had been successful.

"It was because of the career path that East Perth had put forward and we knew that was the major issue for Graham in coming back to WA," Kelly said.

"We also understand Graham's family connection as well, having had both his father and grand- father play at East Perth, as well as his uncle."

The trio have all signed two-year deals. Pettifer, 28, played 113 games and kicked 132 goals for Richmond between 2001 and 2009, claiming the club champion award in 2006. Smith, 24, played 11 games for North Melbourne from 2008 to 2010.

He was a member of VFL premiership teams with North Ballarat in 2008, 2009 and 2010, said that hat-trick of flags made missing out on a regular game with the Kangaroos easier to deal with.

"If you are not playing ones it makes it a bit easier when you go back and are winning premierships at VFL level," said Smith, originally from West Perth.

Pettifer primed, say Royals
Shayne Hope
The West Australian
March 3, 2011



East Perth have rubbished rumours star recruit Kayne Pettifer had left the club without playing a game, declaring the versatile former Richmond player a likely starter in Saturday's pre-season clash with Peel.

East Perth football manager Mark Winnett said Pettifer had been playing in the Northern Territory Football League and completed the required amount of training to play with Royals.

The official NTFL website credits Pettifer with two games with the Waratah club this season, both of which were in December.

"There's no dramas with Kayne at all. He'll probably play this weekend and there's no issues with him," Winnett said.

"He's been playing a little bit in the NT. He's been over (there) training while he's just been finalising his house (in Perth) and all that sort of stuff.

"He's done more than enough at this stage and, like I say, he'll probably play this weekend. I wouldn't read too much into anything that's going round the traps."

Winnett said Pettifer had been in good form during his cameo appearance with Waratah and would play a crucial role for the Royals this season.

Pettifer, 29, was one of several big-name recruits lured to East Perth over the off-season. Former Richmond and Fremantle tall Graham Polak, former Hawthorn midfielder Gary Moss and delisted Kangaroos big man Josh Smith have also joined the club.

"(Pettifer) was up there (NT) for four or five weeks training and kicked 10 goals, eight in one game and two in the other," Winnett said.

"He's been training and he's been doing everything we've asked of him, so we don't have any concerns with him at all."

The East Perth-Peel game at Medibank Stadium is one of three WAFL pre-season fixtures scheduled to start at 2.15pm on Saturday.
Predicted high temperatures have caused concern among WAFL clubs, though extended squads and shortened quarters will ease the burden on players.

MFNC is proud to announce that former Richmond player Royce Vardy will join the club this year as playing assistant coach.  Vardy was drafted by Richmond at pick 21 in the 1999 National Draft went on to play 34 games in the yellow & black.  Joining the boys for training this week for the first time we are sure his height and jumping ability will be a big addition for our forward line this year.

Alroy Gilligan kicked four goals for Claremont in their WAFL final practice game against South Fremantle.

Graham Polak also kicked four goals as East Perth snatched a 10.9 (69) to 9.9 (63) victory over Medibank Stadium co-tenants Subiaco on Friday night.

Kayne Pettifer was among the best for East Perth.

JACKSON Pola-Smith has been blessed with sporting genes most youngsters can only dream about.

His old man, Craig, made a name for himself in the 1980s as a tough, uncompromising utility with the Richmond Tigers in the old Victorian Football League.

Now the youngster from St Augustine’s College has the chance to excel with a Sherrin in hand, following his selection in the under-16 NSW/ACT Rams squad contesting the AFL national championships later this month and in July.

Jackson, who plays for the Manly Bombers and Manly Wolves each weekend, grew up in footy-mad Melbourne before relocating to the peninsula after his dad landed a job with the Sydney Swans.

Yep we can't grab him via F/S. One thing though is he is playing for NSW/ACT where virtually all high picks don't come from being a 2nd division state at U18 level. So if he is any good we'll probably be able to draft him anyway with a mid-late range pick.

His dad was a very good junior footballer. A star at U19 level. He didn't come on at senior level to the level he was as a junior. From memory he was fairly injury-prone.

Rye's Steve Ryan was handed a six-week prescribed suspension for headbutting in Saturday’s MPNFL Nepean League match of the day against Sorrento.

The former Richmond and Collingwood player, who has played more than 400 games of senior football, got into a “push and shove” with Sorrento’s Dion Phillips in the opening term.

Rye chairman of selectors Scott Beel said there was “very little” in the incident and players “clashed heads” in the scuffle.

“It was very low impact and there was no intent so we believe we have a case to take to the tribunal this week,” Beel said.

Brad Miller (not the current one) who was a Richmond rookie in 2002 is playing for South Warrnambool against Warrnambool in the HFNL Grand Final.

(http://static.lifeislocal.com.au/multimedia/images/large/1444456.jpg)

Miller said in his younger days he hadn’t been too keen on training.

“I just liked playing footy, I wasn’t the most dedicated footballer going around. I just enjoyed playing with my mates.”

He won TAC Cup side Western Jets’ best and fairest in 2001 and nominated for the national draft. He was rookie listed by Richmond and played with Coburg Tigers, losing the preliminary final by less than a kick.

Ron's back

        By Scott Palmer
         Sunday Herald-Sun
         25 September, 2011


FORMER Richmond captain Ron Branton is back after many years living on the Gold Coast, and like many of his era, has been in rehab after a hip reconstruction.

Branton, 77, remains one of the Tigers' most admired players, a rover or back pocket of exceptional bravery. He led the side in 1962-63, was three times best and fairest and equal Brownlow runner-up with Kevin Murray and Ken Fraser to Geelong's Alistair Lord in 1962.

Branton's reappearance has caused some excitement among former clubmates at Punt Rd, who are delighted the little champ can again walk without pain.

Thursfield Takes Leongatha Reins

Even though Will Thursfield was a required player for Richmond's 2012 season, a growing landscaping business and the lure of life out of the goldfish bowl that is AFL football at a big Melbourne club had the 6 foot 4 25 year old wanting to retire.

The club is thrilled to have Will on board for the 2012 season. Joining him as assistant will be former tiger team mate Tas Clingan. Tas came off Richmond's rookie list three years ago and has spent the last two seasons playing with Wangaratta Rovers in the Ovens and Murray Football league. That taste of country football experience will be invaluable as the pair plots for success for the upcoming season.

Hyde and seek

Sat 10 Mar, 2012


(http://mm.afl.com.au/Portals/0/chrishyde2316aa12.jpg)
Former Tiger Chris Hyde in action for the Albury Tigers - photo by Matthew Smithwick, The Border Mail



IN THE seven seasons that Chris Hyde spent on Richmond's list, the club did not qualify for the finals.

A couple of ninth-placed finishes, in 2006 and 2008, were the best results that the Tigers managed during Hyde's time at Punt Road.

More often than not they were far closer to the bottom of the ladder, taking home the wooden spoon in his third season and again in his sixth.

Delisted by Richmond at the end of the '08 campaign, Hyde still plays for a team known as the Tigers.

But his latest club is far different to the success-starved AFL outfit he left behind.

The Albury Tigers are a powerhouse in the Ovens and Murray Football League, a competition that includes clubs based in north-east Victoria and southern New South Wales.

And since Hyde joined them for the 2009 season, the Tigers have won the premiership each year.

"It's been pretty good up here, there's no doubt about that," said the 29-year-old, who was a key contributor in the midfield in all three Grand Finals, each of which was against Yarrawonga.

"We've lost only three games in three years, and in 2009 we went through undefeated."

Hyde grew up 140kms further down the Murray River at Barooga. He began playing football for the local club, then graduated to the Murray Bushrangers in his mid-teens.

His pace and evasive skills (Matthew Richardson later called him the best baulker he'd ever played with) caught the eye of Richmond, which selected him with pick 68 in the 2001 NAB AFL Draft.

In 2004 and 2006 he played in all of the Tigers' 22 matches, but he was in and out of the team in his other five seasons.

Upon leaving Richmond, Hyde moved to Tumut in the New South Wales high country to take up a job as a game manager for Game Council of NSW.

"I was like a fishing inspector, but I worked with the hunters," Hyde explained.

"The sort of game that people hunt up in the mountains are deer, rabbits and foxes. We would check that they had a NSW game licence.

"We would also do inspections of forests and provide advice to other organisations about the suitability of certain forests for hunting.

"I really like the outdoors. I like my fishing and hunting. My grandparents lived on a farm and I think that's where I picked those things up from."

Tumut is 200kms from Albury, but Hyde decided to play football for the Tigers after getting in contact with their coach Paul Spargo.

Spargo, who played 81 games for North Melbourne during the 1980s and early '90s, spent a brief period as an assistant coach at Richmond while Hyde was there.

These days Hyde lives in Albury and works as a return-to-work co-ordinator for the Joss Group, a construction and distribution company that has offices throughout New South Wales.

On the footy field, he has been a very consistent performer no matter where he's been living, twice finishing runner-up in the OMFL best and fairest, the Morris Medal.

These days, renowned as a midfielder with an ability to hit the scoreboard, he kicked 46 goals in 20 games last year.

"I try and average about three goals per game, which I think is about right for a midfielder/half-forward," Hyde said.

"It didn't end up being that high last year, but I definitely enjoy kicking a goal."

The Albury football community will be out in force on Saturday afternoon when the AFL comes to town.

Although the clash between Greater Western Sydney and Gold Coast might seem an odd one to be held at the Lavington Sports Ground on Albury's northern fringe, the region is part of the Giants' recruiting zone.

As happened last year, when GWS played North Melbourne before a crowd of around 6,000 in Lavington, a number of kids from southern New South Wales are likely to be running around.

Anthony Miles (North Albury), Sam Schultz (Culcairn) and Tim Segrave (Corowa-Rutherglen) are among the local boys on the Giants' list.

Once the AFL circus has moved out of town, the OMFL will again become the focus of local footy fans.

"They love their footy up here," Hyde said. "And the local footy is definitely of a very good standard.

"The professionalism on and off the field is pretty high these days. We train three nights a week and I don't see many other clubs doing much different."

Many people with their ear to the ground are tipping Yarrawonga to end their run of Grand Final losses, thanks to the addition of star recruit Brendan Fevola.

But the Tigers are confident they have the talent and desire to make it four on the trot.

"We've lost two from our Grand Final side," Hyde said. "One guy is travelling overseas and another has gone to the Northern Territory to be a cowboy.

"But we've gained a few guys, so we'll be in a good position again."

Relton Roberts has joined Troy Taylor at Walla in the Hume Football League...

The Welcome Wanderer
Brett Kohlhagen
The Border Mail
01 May, 2012


WALLA has signed its second former AFL player in five weeks with Northern Territory excitement machine Relton Roberts joining the Hume league club.

Roberts, who played two matches for Richmond in 2010, arrived on the Border on Sunday and will play alongside fellow big-name recruit Troy Taylor against CDHBU at Coreen on Saturday.

Roberts, 26, played with Taylor at Wanderers in Darwin several years ago and is looking forward to reacquainting himself with his former teammate.

“My uncle (Martin White senior) is an assistant-coach at Walla and got me down here,” he said.

“I don’t know much about the football, but I’ll soon see.

“It will be good playing with Troy again.”

Roberts played for Northern Territory club Southern Districts this season and has previously spent time with Euroa, Arnhem Crows, Wanderers and NT Thunder.

He was picked up by Richmond in the third round of the 2010 rookie draft and made his debut in round 1 against Carlton before homesickness and disciplinary problems abruptly ended his AFL career.

White said he believed Roberts and Taylor had plenty to offer Walla as it tried climb back up the ladder.

“The younger local guys will learn a lot about football from Relton and Troy,” he said.

“Relton is a very skilful player who will play in the midfield.”

Walla has started the season impressively, after failing to win a match last year.

It has wins against Rand-Walbundrie and Murray Magpies in the first three rounds.

Taylor has been one of the major reasons for the Hoppers’ improved form with the enigmatic forward kicking four and 10 goals in their two wins.

My team played against Walla yesterday. Roberts was good, easily a class above. I think he kicked six goals and he passed alot off. He came out of the square and has obviously been in a good paddock. Troy Taylor was quieter but he he is the most impressive of the two. Taylor has been kicking a few goals up here and still has a great set of hands. The walla boys say that they have fitted in well.
On a bad note, Taylor has brought a mate or two down from darwin to play. One of them is a loose pizzle. he ran into the crowd and swung a couple of cut lunches at a spectator who had had a crack at him about his rats tail. He then chased another supporter into the social rooms where kids were playing and threw a couple in there. He is just out of jail apparently. Taylor brought him down to help pull his head in but it doesnt seem to be working.

I saw the last quarter and a half of the Chelsea Heights vs Heatherton game on Saturday, and to my surprise noticed Greg Stafford lining up at FF for Heatherton.

In the last quarter right in front of me, and in true classic Stafford style, he got himself into a scuffle and with his left hand was fending off one opponent who wanted a piece of him, and without even looking, he (allegedly) swung his right elbow with impeccable timing towards another opponent who was coming in from his right hand side. He got him fair on the scone. IMO it was self defence Stafford style- with the end of his pointy elbow. The guy was coming in from the side while Staff was preoccupied, the big fella was just protecting himself!

He got reported though and would be looking at 2 weeks I'd imagine.

Emma Quayle wrote a piece about Anderson a few years ago Ramps ...

Pick 4 RICHARD ANDERSON (Richmond)

Then a 24-year-old shooting star, recently plucked from his Adelaide University side to join Norwood.

What happened? Didn’t go to Richmond. Played country footy and won Norwood’s 1988 best and fairest.

Now director of students at St John’s Grammar in the Adelaide Hills, and father to Meg, 8, Ella, 6 and Jessie, 2.

RICHARD Anderson still has the No. 53 guernsey the Tigers sent when they drafted him. Back then, it was difficult to look at.

Anderson was 24 when Collingwood, St Kilda, Footscray and the Tigers wanted him to come play for them. But football was something he had only just started taking seriously, and their attention was too much.

He felt intimidated, and unsure, so he took a teaching job in Port Pirie and headed off, not even inclined to keep an eye on how Richmond was going.

"I didn’t want to think about it. I really did try to avoid it, because I’d worry and worry," said Anderson.

"I guess I tended instinctively not to follow the club, or absorb myself in it, because it all felt a bit odd. "It was all going too fast. I remember feeling like I had no control, and that was very unnerving. A lot of people thought I was mad, that I had this fantastic opportunity and here I was, running away from it. "It was flattering, but I didn’t understand it. It all felt very intimidating."

Anderson went back to Norwood in 1988, where he won a best-and-fairest, and made the state side. He had secret intentions to get to Punt Road at some stage, but felt under-prepared and kept telling himself: one more year.

Then came a back injury, and then a drop in form.

A teacher for 20 years now, Anderson was at Pembroke School in Adelaide’s eastern suburbs when Barnaby French and Angus Monfries came through, harbouring more focused big-league dreams than he had. "They’re so well prepared now," he said. "They grow up wanting it, and knowing how it works."

If he had his time over, Anderson would pack his bags, and not stop to worry. "I wish I could say I had played VFL. I really do, and I live with that regret."

The club should get Richmond Official to give him a call and do an interview for the club website. It would be a really interesting story I reckon. The man still has his Richmond jumper ... I wonder if he has had the same psychological issues most of us have had over the last 25 years watching the Tigers in action.  :lol

Alroy Gilligan stars in Tigers win over Thunder
Dale Miller
The West Australian
August 13, 2012


It took just one league appearance for Alroy Gilligan to remind Claremont selectors of what he can bring to their finals campaign.

Gilligan didn't waste time making an impression at Claremont Oval on Saturday in his return to the league leaders' line-up.

The 22-year-old booted three goals from 20 disposals as the hosts shrugged off a sluggish first term to dispose of Peel Thunder by 81 points, 20.12 (132) to 7.9 (51).

The performance effectively ended a two-month exile for Gilligan.

The former Richmond rookie and WAFL premiership player was dumped to the amateurs in June as punishment after failing to turn up to a Claremont reserves game.

He has concentrated on building his fitness and showed against Peel the X-factor he can bring to a side in genuine premiership mode.

Tigers football manager Dean Horsington said Gilligan had slotted seamlessly back into the line-up.

"He's definitely got genuine leg speed," Horsington said. "Not that we don't have that, but he is a massive asset with the way he can break the lines with his speed and use of the football."

Horsington said the lively forward had well and truly moved on from his indiscretion.

It came after he was dropped following the club's one-point loss to East Perth in round 12.

"He knew he'd made a mistake," Horsington said. "No one's going to hang him on it. He's done the hard work since.

"He's really worked on his fitness as well to be able to play league footy.

"He's shown some really good discipline since that little hiccup."

Adelaide has added three new faces to its football staff, including former Richmond utility Duncan Kellaway.

Kellaway played 108 games for the Tigers between 1993 and 2004. The 39-year-old has spent the past six years working as physiotherapist at Geelong.

He joins the Crows as a physiotherapist specialising in player rehabilitation.

Your'e right Coach it is ridiculus. There is no salary cap in the o and m. Albury have some very strong sponsers such as Joss and offer jobs. Hyde works at Joss too. Thats what gets them over the line. Paul Spargo owns a car yard and tips in quite a bit too.

Ex-AFL footballer Billy Nicholls charged over shootings

    Mark Buttler
    From: Herald Sun
    April 26, 2013 7:17PM


A FORMER AFL footballer is behind bars over two shootings in Geelong.

Billy Nicholls, 32, has been charged with two counts of intentionally causing serious injury and related offences.

He appeared in Geelong Magistrates' Court where he was remanded in custody until May 2.

One of the charges related to an incident in Myrtle Grove, North Shore, in which a man aged in his 40s suffered serious injuries on January 8 this year.

The other was in connection with a shooting in which a Coburg man, aged in his 20s, was injured.

He received gunshot injuries to the legs after a confrontation in Springfield Court, Corio, on June 18 last year.

Those offences and others were the target of a special police taskforce called Griffin.

It is made up of detectives from the armed crime taskforce and investigators from Geelong.

Nicholls played 16 games with the Hawks and Tigers in an injury-plagued career between 2001-04.

Gifted footballer Billy Nicholls now a fallen star

    Mark Buttler
    Herald Sun
    May 03, 2013 5:59PM


THERE are those who would tell you Billy Nicholls should be in the twilight of a successful AFL career.

A gifted junior footballer, he starred on debut, aged 15, against hardened men in a tough Geelong competition. Five years later, in 2001, Nicholls kicked three goals on debut for Hawthorn, and played a final that year.

But fast-forward 12 years, and Nicholls, 32, is in a cell on remand, looking at the possibility of serious jail time over two separate shootings in his home city in the past 11 months.

Those who knew the young Nicholls say he was always a bit of a scallywag, but what made him different was a tremendous footballing talent that, if harnessed, might have set him up for life.

The Geelong Football League is a high-standard competition played in a highly physical fashion at senior level. Nicholls was a major factor in a successful era for the North Shore club.

He had seven scoring shots in booting two of his team's nine goals in just his second game, the 1996 grand final.

"He was dominant. He mixed it really well with the big boys," an observer told the Herald Sun.

"He could have been anything in footy. It's a bit of a shame."

Nicholls was invited to the elite Geelong Falcons TAC Cup team. He was drafted to Hawthorn, but after 16 games with the Hawks and Richmond between 2001 and 2004, he headed back to Geelong and played with Corio.

"He's a likable larrikin and very loyal bloke. Part of where he's at today might be because of that," one former associate said.

Nicholls's fondness for a big night out was well known around Geelong and that, combined with injuries, is seen as a factor in his truncated career in top-level footy.

By 2010 Nicholls was badly out of shape when he resumed his career with South Warrnambool in the Hampden Football League. The father of three got a job at a local power station, lost 15kg and booted six goals in a semi-final.

"When it came to footy, he was absolutely switched on . . . dedicated to the cause," one ex-player said. "If he commits himself to something, he's great at it."

Early this year Nicholls was still toying with the idea of getting back into football. The Geelong Advertiser reported he was considering running out with Corio.

But about this time, police were putting in their own hard yards on the two shootings.

The first was in June last year, when a 25-year-old Coburg man was shot in the leg after arriving at the Springfield Court home Nicholls was sharing with his partner.

There were rumours the victim had been reluctant to help police, but it became clear in March that this had not deterred investigators when they raided the home looking for more evidence.

It was then announced that a special police taskforce called Griffin, headed by Detective Inspector Adrian Dalzotto, had been investigating the shootings for months.

The second shooting, at North Shore on January 8, left a 46-year-old man in hospital with a leg injury.

CCTV footage released to the media showed two men, one of whom appeared to be holding a handgun, entering the Myrtle Grove property.

Officers from the Special Operations Group - which specialises in high-risk arrests - pounced near the Corio shopping centre on April 26.

Amateur footage shows the former footballer and a mate walking along a street before the SOG officers pile from a white van, guns trained on the pair.

The mate is shoved aside and Nicholls calmly complies with an order to lie face down on the footpath. It is all over in seconds.

The courts will now decide the next chapter of the Billy Nicholls story.

Based on the way he played yesterday he has a fair bit of work to do.  2 ex-Tigers were much much better than him - Troy Taylor and Gibson Turner.  Gee, I wish Taylor had applied himself to the task of succeeding as an AFL footballer, he is seriously good at the current level and it's a shame Turner couldn't stand up to the rigours at that level because he is very very good.  Tambling was the worst of the 3 and played exactly like we are all used to seeing - getting a bit of the ball but butchering some simple delivery.

Victorian Deputy Premier and Leader of The Nationals, Peter Ryan visited Ararat yesterday to announce Mr Turner as the The Nationals' candidate for Ripon in the 2014 State election.

While he retired from AFL football after 144 games in 1999, Mr Turner is still involved with the sport, this year coaching the Ararat Football Club's under-17 team.

Thursfield headed to LVFL premiers to reunite with former Tiger teammate Andrew Collins

DEFENDING Loddon Valley Football League premiers Bridgewater will have two ex-AFL players on its list next year, with Will Thursfield joining new Mean Machine coach Andrew Collins at the club.

Thursfield and Collins are former team-mates at AFL club Richmond.

Thursfield played 77 AFL games for Richmond between 2005 and 2011.

The 27-year-old coached Leongatha in the Gippsland Football League this year, but will join good mate Collins at Bridgewater in what is another recruiting coup for not only the Mean Machine, but the LVFL.

"Will is going to play for us, so that's very exciting," Collins said on Wednesday.

"He's a quality player and a quality person and will be a massive asset for us.

"He can play in a variety of different roles and wants to come up and have a bit of fun.

"We've been great mates since 2007 when I first joined the Tigers and he already knows quite a few of the Bridgewater boys, so he will fit in really well.

"With his experience, Will knows football very well. He has coached, so not only his playing ability, but his knowledge of the game will be fantastic.

"But we're also just as excited about all the other players we've got coming as well."

I'm not sure if this is relevant to this thread, but I just had an amazing conversation with a guy I was doing a quote for...he went on to say he played for the Richmond football club, so I asked when and who he was...turns out it was Ron Branton. I had never heard of him (although I never said that to him in those words) and asked him to tell me more of his playing days...he was very modest when telling me about his accomplishments that consisted of Club Captain for 3 yrs, Club B&F winner 3 yrs in a row, runner up in the Brownlow, leading club goal kicker 2 yrs and RFC Hall of Fame Member...He was such a humble man when talking about his playing days, I could've talked to him for hours! I felt almost embarrassed that a life long Tiges Supporter as myself had never heard of this man, who is obviously a living legend of his time.

Branton was captain and B&F winner from 1960-62. Sadly for good players in eras where we were poor on-field, future generations don't know about them as people focus on successful eras and premiership teams and players. In 20-30 years time, most younger Tiger supporters won't know about Campbell and Knights especially if our current crop goes onto to greatness and wins a flag :pray. Even Richo may be known more for being a footy commentator by then than his deeds on the field such as the record multiple club goalkicking awards and 800 goals at the 'G.

By our generation of supporters that saw him play - yes definitely. But future gens? Maybe but there's just as much as a chance that he won't be by most future gens, given the period he played in was a long forgettable one team-wise. If this current group wins a flag then most younger and future gen supporters' minds won't be looking further back to the poor mid-late-80s/90s/00s to find their Tiger heroes and legends.

Former Tiger Scott Turner puts hands up for state seat of Ripon
 

March 30, 2014

Darren Gray 

It has been 15 years since he last played for Richmond, he admits that his knees are no longer what they used to be and soon he will celebrate his 44th birthday.

Yet Scott Turner, a former Richmond defender who lined up in the 1990s against some of the best players in AFL history - including Gary Ablett (senior), Tony Lockett and Jason Dunstall - has been recruited again.

The father of two, now the HR manager at a large manufacturing company in Ararat, will run for parliament in this year's state election for the Nationals in the seat of Ripon.

Mr Turner, who was born and raised in Ararat and returned a few years ago with his family, is running for a country seat that could be crucial to the election outcome. Labor's Joe Helper has held the seat for 15 years, but is retiring at the election and the Coalition hopes to seize it. Ripon is the most rural seat held by Labor in Victoria, and has been held for long stints by Labor and the conservative parties.

Given the Coalition has only a one-seat majority in Parliament, seats such as Ripon with relatively tight margins will be key battlegrounds. The Liberals have preselected Louise Staley, while Labor has preselected Daniel McGlone.

Perhaps not surprisingly it was another former footballer who made the bid to draft Mr Turner for the Nationals. Former Sport and Veterans Affairs minister Hugh Delahunty, a 46-game Essendon player in the 1970s, invited Mr Turner for a catch-up at a restaurant in Ararat.

Mr Turner says Mr Delahunty's recruiting drive ''came out of the blue'', but after thinking about it for a couple of weeks he decided to run. ''He said they'd spoken about me and done their homework on me and they think that I'm the right person for the role,'' he says.

Agree Al, I know it's biased but I reckon Richo ended up being the equal to any contested mark of his generation.
He's kicked 800 goals and been pretty stuffing courageous as well.
Good thing is we get to see so much of it as there is extensive TV coverage.

I reckon his legacy will be well preserved.  :thumbsup

FORMER Richmond and Adelaide utility Richard Tambling has quit SANFL club Sturt to be closer with friends and family in the Northern Territory.

The Double Blues vice-captain first knocked back an opportunity to play with NT Thunder in 2014 to remain in Adelaide.

But the 28-year-old wants his children to experience his family's culture in the Top End.

Tambling - who worked as the SANFL’s Diversity Programs Co-ordinator this year – has also secured employment with AFLNT in a similar role.

The 124-game AFL player told the SANFL website there were many reasons for wanting to move back home, in particular spending more time with his grandmother Barbara, who played a significant role in his upbringing.

"I have enjoyed my time here and the opportunities given to me by the Sturt Football Club and the SANFL," he said.

"But the lure of going home has been there for quite some time. Having young kids and not having too many other family members around has been difficult.

"We are looking at taking our kids home to spend some time with the family to learn a bit about their cultural heritage in the bush."

"She (Barbara) has got a lot of information in her brain about her cultural past which has to pass down to generations. My kids just haven’t spent enough time with her and she is in and out of hospital at the moment so getting back to see her live out her days has probably led to my decision."

Tambling will again play with Southern Districts in the NTFL in the 2014-15 season before it is likely he will join Territory Thunder for the 2015 NEAFL season.

"They (Thunder) missed out on the Grand Final last year by a couple of kicks," Tambling said.

"It is a good standard of football as they get to play against the (AFL) reserves sides in Sydney and Brisbane."

Former Irish rookie, John Heslin, is now a farmer and gaelic footballer back in Ireland.


(http://data.celticmediagroup.com/width/433/img/2015/01/16/312061af11e40fecc8d445016f4bf2d3.jpg)

To some I may be better known as a Westmeath and St Loman’s footballer, something which I am very proud to say. GAA, however, is a hobby which requires dedication that mirrors professional athletes.

My profession is agriculture. When people hear this the reply is often: “So you’re a farmer?” Yes, I am a farmer, a qualified farmer if you like.

I graduated from UCD with a degree in Agricultural Science last May and have recently been pursuing a PhD in heifer puberty. My PhD gives me the opportunity to work with a large number of animals, running different trials with the aim to improve the efficiency of beef production.

I am based in Trim, County Meath, which is going to be an experience in itself considering the love/hate relationship we Westmeath Gaels tend to share with our neighbours.

During my college years I took a year out. I had been offered a contract to play Aussie Rules with Richmond Tigers in Melbourne. It was an experience of a lifetime and I will always be grateful for that opportunity.

Using “I have road frontage” as a chat-up line, however, didn’t get me too far in the city of Melbourne, so I made for home to finish my degree.

I owe both my interest in [gaelic] football and agriculture to my father and he was delighted with my return.

Former Richmond Tigers ruckman Andrew Browne stars for Essendon District Football League in 81-point win over Southern Football League

    Damien Ractliffe
    Moonee Valley Leader
March 29, 2015 3:51PM


FORMER AFL ruckman Andrew Browne solidified his standing as one of metropolitan football’s premier big men with a best afield performance in the Essendon District Football League’s comprehensive AFL Victoria Metropolitan championships win on Saturday.

The Keilor big man stood tallest at Princes Park against the Southern Football League, dominating in the ruck as well as providing options up forward and in defence in the 16.13 (109) to 4.4 (28) masterclass.

“He’s a good player isn’t he? He’s got a good workrate,” EDFL coach Mick McGuane said of Browne.

“This time last year being overseas, he wanted to help the league out even though he wasn’t ready to play.

“This year he’s had a much better campaign as you saw today. He was getting across the ground like a ruck-rover at times. I felt his field position was great, he slid forward when he had to, to put some forward pressure in our front half, but also went back for security and protection.”

McGuane, who also coaches the former Richmond ruckman at Keilor, said Browne still has life at AFL level.

“We hope he does, to be perfectly honest. I’m about promotion,” McGuane said.

“We try to nurture talent in our competition. We often speak to blokes involved in AFL club land still — they ask questions, we give answers, and if we think they’re good enough, we certainly kick them out the door.”

Daniel Jackson has relocated to Toronto in Canada and helping out with Canada's national women's footy team, Northern Lights.



Another member of the Lights team who will be on debut will be former AFL Richmond Best and Fairest winner Daniel Jackson, who will be assisting the Northern Lights in various roles.

“Dan spoke to the players before the IC Grand Final last year. He was impressed with the way they approached their football and in particular how they performed in the final. Since relocating to Toronto this year he has got involved with the program in the East with our forward coach Greg Everett. We are thrilled to have someone of Dan’s experience on board and see his appointment as an indication of the respect these players have earned through sheer hard work.”

White maggot time for David Rodan, from the AFL live app....

NUGGETTY former on-baller David Rodan has signalled his intention to pursue a career as a goal umpire.

The 31-year-old, who retired in 2013 after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee for the third time, wants to trade in his footy boots for a set of white flags. 

"I've seen David down here on a couple of occasions working out with our goal umpires coach," AFL umpires boss Hayden Kennedy told 3AW on Thursday.

"He moves well between the sticks.

"He's going to bring a lot of character to goal umpiring.

"I spoke to David about why he wanted to become a goal umpire and they're just fantastic reasons, about the multicultural [side of things] and how he can get other people involved.

"It's just a fantastic story if it ends up David actually debuts."

Rodan, who was born in Fiji, played 185 AFL games including 65 for Richmond from 2002-06, 111 with Port Adelaide from 2007-12 and nine for Melbourne in 2013.

His last knee reconstruction was his fourth in total, after being one of the first AFL players to receive a LARS ligament in 2009.

After winning Dancing with the Stars last year, Rodan lined up for Northern Football League team West Preston Lakeside this season and played 16 games.

If he succeeds in becoming an AFL-level goal umpire, he will join Leigh Fisher and Jordan Bannister – who are field umpires – as former players to make the transition.

Former Carlton midfielder Andrew Carrazzo is also expected to make the transition to field umpiring after retiring this year.

Retired Richmond forward Jake King also hit a snag with the auction of his five-bedroom house in Northcote.

The home at 82 Christmas St, which had also been expected to fetch $1.3-$1.4 million, passed in but sold four days later for an undisclosed price.

King, who hung up his footy boots last season and is now a commentator on Triple M, bought the home for $745,000 in 2008.

Built in the 1950s, it has been renovated and extended with a designer kitchen, internal spa deck and a spectacular outdoor entertaining zone.

Two weeks after the AFL Grand Final was run and won, football continued to flourish in Tasmania this weekend with a host of stars including Matthew Richardson taking part in a charity match on Saturday.

Richardson, 40, showed he hasn't forgotten where the goals are with a bag of six majors in Tasmania's 32-point win over a Victorian representative side.

The match, staged for the fourth year running to raise money and awareness for Muscular Dystrophy Tasmania (MDT), is the brainchild of long-time football administrator Jaimes Wiggins.

Wiggins said Saturday's game, won 17.9 (111) to 12.7 (79), was played in front of nearly 4000 people at North Hobart Oval.

Former Brisbane and Richmond forward Luke McGuane will also take the reigns of his own team in 2016 and like Chapman he may not take the field. McGuane is seeking compensation for debilitating knee injuries that brought the 28-year-old’s 112-game career to a premature end and this may restrict his ability to play for new club Keilor.

David Rodan - West Preston (Northern Football League).

Nathan Gordon — Balwyn (EFL)

John Heslin: I would have regretted not chasing Oz dream

Independent.ie
Donnchadh Boyle
24/02/2016


Last Saturday's Sigerson Cup win was exactly the kind of thing that John Heslin knew he could miss out on when as a teenager, he took up an offer from the Richmond Tigers to pursue a career in the AFL.

The lure of Melbourne and a professional life was too much not to at least give it a try. Yet he was back in Mullingar with the most of his two-year deal still to run and while there are things he would have done differently, there are no regrets.

The decision to return has since been vindicated. He has seen some big days, not least helping the county beat Meath for the first time in Championship history last summer.

Taking the leap was a risk, but it's a risk he's glad he took.

"Anyone I have spoken to. . . I spoke to Colin O'Riordan and a couple of lads. . . I just said you have to go," he said. "You'll never regret going but I would have regretted not going.

"I went over too early in the year. Usually an Irish player goes over in October, then gets a couple of weeks off for Christmas and goes back over.

"But I went out in July. I had a longer period when I was ineligible to play games and I was just training. That had its part to play.

"But that's hindsight. It's a phenomenal opportunity for any player to go over."

Former Tiger Jayden Post suffers serious corked thigh playing for Altona

Scott Gullan
Herald Sun
July 20, 2016


AN old-fashioned corkie has triggered a series of events that threatens the career of former Richmond player Jayden Post.

Playing for Altona in the Western Region Football League two weeks ago, Post suffered a heavy knock to the thigh in the second quarter but kept playing until he received a hit to the same spot in the final term during a ruck contest.

He iced up the injury after the game and had planned to go and watch his old side play the Western Bulldogs but instead ended up spending the night in hospital.

Despite still being in pain Post was sent home and it was only after the insistence of his partner Bree Bartlett, the daughter of Richmond legend Kevin, that he went back to hospital — a move that probably saved his life.

“He ruptured the artery and bled internally,” Post’s father, Brian, said. “But he then contracted compartment syndrome which was why he was in so much pain.

“The surgeon said if he’d stayed at home and had a couple of Panadol for the pain instead of coming back to hospital the second time then he would have been in a lot of trouble.”

Post, who played 30 games for the Tigers in four seasons before being cut at the end of 2012, has a long scar running down the side of his leg with doctors warning his sporting career could be over.

“He’s obviously shattered because all he wanted to do was play in a flag with his mates,” Brendan explained.

“Probably 80 per cent of the current team started together when they were eight-years old and when Jayden moved to the Western Jets and then Richmond, the other boys won an U/18 flag and then a senior flag in 2012.

FORMER Richmond forward Kayne Pettifer maintained an undefeated start to his professional boxing career last night, defeating Paul Gould on points at Hisense Arena.

Pettifer, who played 113 games for Richmond between 2001-09, last night had former Tigers teammates Jack Riewoldt, Chris Newman and Shaun Grigg in the crowd in support.

Another Richmond star, Dustin Martin, was also ringside.

The fight was just the 34-year-old’s second, but he looked accomplished against West Australian Gould, who now has a 1-3 record.

It was a three-round bout of two minutes each and the first was tight, before the fitter and stronger Pettifer took control.

Petiffer’s right hand caused Gould plenty of issues during rounds two and three.

He was adjudged a 30-27 winner by all three judges.

“It’s a big adrenaline rush, I’m really excited,” Pettifer said.

“I hit him with some good shots. It was really good of him to take the fight, because it only came up late.

“It was only three by two, so it was really on. But it was good to get the win and good to know that the hard work has paid off.”

Pettifer’s only previous bout was in December 2014 against Kiattisak Kuarwan, whom he beat on points at The Melbourne Pavilion.

But he said last night it’s up to his manager and trainer as to what direction his career goes next.

“I’ll see where they want me to go,” Pettifer said.

“But I definitely want to have one more, it’s a pretty addictive sport and this was a good night.”

Chris Newman will be the senior coach of Box Hill Hawks for 2017.

Robin Nahas is a player in demand. But there's a fair chance he'll return to Port Melbourne, a nice boost for the Borough.

Justin Plapp is, of course, coaching Casey Scorpions in this Sunday's VFL Grand Final.

Wodonga identity Jack Eames has died, aged 94

David Johnston
Border Mail
18 Jan 2017, 5 p.m.


JACK Eames, a World War II veteran, Richmond player (1946), and Wodonga Bulldogs' star footballer, has died, aged 94.

One of the city's most well-known identities, Eames rose to the rank of sergeant after joining the Army Ordnance Corp in 1941 and served in New Guinea where he is credited with helping establish three spare parts units.

He was discharged in 1946 and immediately joined VFL club Richmond despite still being based on the Border.

Eames played 14 senior matches for the Tigers and famously hopped aboard the Spirit Of Progress train each Saturday morning to travel to Melbourne and play.

Often there would be no seats available on the train and he was forced to stand until spots became available at Seymour.

One of his fondest memories at Richmond was playing in a drought-breaking win against Collingwood at Victoria Park under legendary coach Jack Dyer.

Even though he played only one season for Richmond, Eames kept close contact with the club and is credited with helping the Tigers recruit John Perry, Geoff Strang, Barry Richardson and Kevin Smith from the Ovens and Murray area.

RIP.

-------------------------

Coastal sporting great Ray Stokes died over the weekend at the age of 92.

The all-round talents of Stokes, 92, seemingly knew no bounds, captaining Tasmania in both football and cricket.

His deeds with the Sherrin saw him wear the yellow and black of Richmond 93 times from 1946-51, playing alongside his brother Jervis at times, impressing those in at Punt Road so much he was described by the great Jack Dyer as “the best thing to cross the Bass Strait”.

Stokes and Dyer were not only teammates, but good friends.

Brendon Gale, himself an example of a Coaster to succeed for the Tigers on field who is now the club’s chief executive, the connection runs much deeper than just football, having known him since the mid-1980s as a neighbour in Burnie.

“He was older than my father, but I knew just by the way that my father (Don) spoke about him that he was just a highly respected figure in sport generally,’’ Gale said.

“It wasn’t until I got to Richmond (Gale played 244 games for the Tigers between 1990-2001) that I realised how highly respected he was here, as the guys who played around that time held him in such a high regard as he was so tough and talented.

“He was a very humble person, disciplined and well organised person.

“He was always in really good condition and was a fitness fanatic, and he’d always be out walking or running most mornings or playing golf.

“He was a real product of his generation, pretty hard, frugal, personally disciplined and full of integrity.”
